Artist Statement

Silhouette is a black image on white, an equilibration between the positive and negative space.  The simple outline and featureless interior has a sense of clarity.  However the limited physiognomic information also induces a mysterious imagination of what’s hidden in the dark.  Who is that woman wearing in Chinese costume and period European collar?   

Physiognomy has a very long history in human cultures. In China and other Asian cultures, face reading techniques developed sometime in the first millennia BC.  Physiognomic inferences include personality, character or even the destiny of the person. In Western cultures, the association of facial features with a person's characteristics also has a history, first noted in the writings of the ancient Greeks.   

In the Tea Silk and Porcelain series, the subject is shadow lacking the inferences of personality, character and identity.  What is the character of people from Hong Kong, a former British colony?  Being the last generation of colonialism, I was raised in dual cultures.  We absorbed influences from foreign cultures, yet on the other hand, the one and a half centuries’ absence from China had not effaced our heritage and links with the mother culture.  The East-West fusion has developed into our indigenous culture.
