Artist Statement

Emotions are the channel of self-expression; they are the way to express our innermost feelings. Color can trigger different parts of a human’s brain, and it is a way to record life, memories of the past, interpret current growth, and a vision of the future. I believe color is irreplaceable: it becomes a way for me to express myself. Traditionally, jewelry uses gemstone and enamel to deliver color to give vibrancy to surface, using metal as the base. Because of their value and inaccessibility, they are not everyday objects.

 

I want to use color as a language to show the two different sides of "me:" one in reality, low profile, not special, hard to distinguish from a group of people; a person who just likes natural and neutral colors. The other is in my world: high profile, unique; it is easy to recognize from a group of people: the same as vibrant color.
