It Ain't Nothin' But a Party

"This piece is aåÊresponse to the "MEGACITIES ASIA" exhibition at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and is a red, white, and blue celebration of Boston and Cambridge's expansion through high rise construction, bridge reconstruction, and land use redevelopment.

As with the Megacities AsiaåÊshow, I used many mass-produced objects; from the party store (symbolizing celebration), dollar store (symbolizing mass production), and craft store (symbolizing the crafts and arts): party decorations and streamers, paper napkins, tissue wrapping paper, stickers and yarns. My base is acrylic paints. The materials are finished with acrylic varnishes.
My process was both carefully planned and intuitive. The party decorations and streamers evoke a lively party. The discs adorned with mooncake printed tissue papers are reference to the moon time-traveling through the sky. The sections of Boston and Cambridge are made from my worn and torn subway system map as memories floating on the Charles River in continual flux. Flowers, both a common element in Asian decorations and American party themes are represented by the sunflowers, also a symbol of the sun.The cartoon composite female has her hair done up for the party. She celebrates all of the changes and asks, 'What will the future be?'"
