Artist Statement

I was born in Australia to parents of Anglo Saxon and Chinese heritage. I have always held a fascination and intrigue by the one side of my heritage, that of Chinese, which I have been deprived of  knowing or experiencing. My father refrained from enforcing our ‘Chinese story’ onto his children for a desire to assimilate into a western culture.

As a child one of the few chinese traditions that my father encouraged was the ceremony of ancestral worship. Paper offerings including hell bank notes, food and incence were put on the grave to assist the ancestor in the afterlife and also influence the fortune of the living relatives. This work talks about my multi cultural heritage, with references to colonial clichés such as Holly Hobby wallpaper and the western world’s obsession with material wealth.
