I am a London-based printmaker and installation artist. Born in Taiwan and raised in New Zealand before moving to Europe, my work explores the hidden geography of human anatomy, peeling back the skin of the everyday to reveal the common beauty beneath.
The processes of lithography allow me to be both beholden to chance, and to act as its editor, pivoting on the vanishing point between spontaneity and deliberation. My installations combine sculpture and print in an attempt to bridge the gap between the cutaneous and the sub-cutaneous, the surface and its depths.
I graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, New Zealand.
