My current work consists of abstracted landscapes that link the actions of human nature (consumption, waste, encroachment) to the natural world. As a Vietnamese American artist, I emphasize cultural identity as a connection to my past. This connection allows me to personally address socioeconomics, the environment, and identity. I am inspired by the human psychological connection to the environment. Psychological changes are interpreted as environmental patterns of weather, terrain, and migration. These elements fuse together to demonstrate progress as well as deterioration. I reconstruct scenes primarily from memory, which allows for injections of imaginary and dreamlike elements. These places straddle what is real and imagined.
