Red Bean Paste and Apple Pie, 2012

If it's true that we are what we eat, then the series Red Bean Paste and Apple Pie is both a personal exploration of my story of immigration and a broader look at what it means to be an American. Presented as diptychs (except for one polyptych of four panels), each painting contains parallel narratives that can be surprising, nostalgic, humorous, but at times alarming about what we eat.
