Flo Oy Wong
I am a narrative mixed media installation artist who focuses on ordinary people and their extraordinary stories. I use rice, rice sacks, joss paper, bilingual English and Chinese text, as well as recycled and found objects to visually talk about the human condition. As an American artist of Chinese descent, I retrieve metaphors from my ancestral culture to aesthetically examine my sense of bifurcation. I seek transformation of family, cultural and collective issues that are emotionally corrosive.
