Artist Statement

Threshold explores the diverse relationships often inherent in the Chinese-Canadian diaspora by presenting organic forms emerging from a more traditional and geometric space. Varied foliage is interspersed through the piece as it grows as a new addition to the space alongside the tigers, all of which are emerging outward from the traditional architectural motif of the Chinese fencing. The bio-diversity mirrors the slow exploration of identity and the different ways a community grows, diversifies and branches out from its place of origin.
