The work in this show started from my obsession with food, especially sweets. Growing up in Taiwan, I remember going to supermarkets and bakeries with my parents and longing for all the colorful and eye-catching sweets and buttery pastries. I find it curious that I still desire them even though they don’t always taste as good as they look. As a response to this emotional conflict, I create sculptures to explore the ideas of obsession, sensation, and the relationship between natural and artificial.
