Artist’s statement

Humanity is engaged in an insatiable pursuit for immortality – not to live and breathe forever but to be remembered forever. Long after I am gone is an exploration of our innate desire for our lives to leave behind a 'legacy’. The hope of legacy gently places a blindfold over our eyes and whispers gently in our ear, poking and prodding us into creating and achieving. I explore the power of texture through the metaphor of bandage-like headcloths, digitally melding into statues and feats of architecture, while lion and leopard faces represent bravery and triumph.

Influencing artists: Yaryshev Evgeny, Jeffrey Wang
