These three works were installed in 2013 at the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) in San Francisco, California. I was one of the two artists featured in Creative Spaces, an exhibit to showcase individual artists’ interpretations of their Chinese-American experience.
Space cannot be touched or seen. Yet, everything takes place in space. Space is revealed to us through the placement and arrangement of form. Form is tangible, space is imagined.
These are all structures I built in my garden from reclaimed and found materials. Two of these are memorials – one to poet Al Robles and the other to my dog Kaleo. The stone slabs held by wooden structures are remnants and damaged pieces from another art project by artist, May Sun (Union Station, Los Angeles.) The lumber came from various home-improvement projects.
