Introduction 作品介紹


In this new exhibit, “POP ARCADE”, commonplace imagery from popular childhood snacks, toys, and television are remixed and regurgitated for your viewing pleasure. Many of these images will resonate with other Asian-Americans like the artist, though the memory of snacking happily on something wrapped in colorful paper or foil while watching a beloved cartoon can prove universal. The exhibit includes reverential gouache paintings of beloved snack foods, bold graphics of commonplace objects, and small handmade toys inspired by analog pastimes before smart phones.
