In the age of migration and multicultural families, no one has to be one thing - Winnie straddles three countries of Indonesia, China, and the U.S where she worked as educator as well as artist. In her mixed-media works, tropical and botanical motifs are not relegated as an exotic backdrop but intermingle with human bodies. Some motifs are more pronounced, like figures sitting in the position of or making hand gestures of Buddha. But Winnie's playful collage uses these pieces to resist the sense of a fixed origin, fully giving in celebrating rather than resisting the confusions of having multitudinous identities.
Joseph's paintings are candid records of all the thoughts, actions, and time he invested in them. Take one of his works and really take time tracing each mark. Try to count all the different ways the artist sprayed, painted, and dripped paint over it, try to imagine the wild movements he made with his whole body wrestling the canvas. And it's not just paint, too. All of Joseph's works are mixed-media, allowing the surface to build up a thickness with one material on another.
Finally, it's Spring. Whatever spring may mean to you - a leisurely picnic, a decadent party on the waters, or enjoying a good book with the windows open - we have something for everyone.
