"Drawing from my own experiences as a transgender first generation Asian American immigrant and sex worker, each image is a reclamation of my given yet estranged Chinese culture. Through constant research I have gained a significant amount of knowledge regarding cultural symbols and mythos which I love incorporating into my work. Partially because these points of reference help provide me personal insight and feel like a reclamation of self, but also because I was purposely not taught Chinese and so I understand the value of pictorial language. I want to represent my experience—something still often misunderstood–as beautiful as I perceive it to be, in a format that is accessible to others. I want to create works akin to earlier Ming and Qing dynasty erotic art (much of which was largely lost during the cultural revolution) but dealing with 21st century understandings of sexuality and gender. Pornography is the portrayal of sexual content solely with the intent to sexually arouse —what I aspire to portray although sexual however, is predominantly emotional."
