I am interested in blue and white not only for its reference to Korean ceramics from the Joseon Dynasty, but also its loaded history throughout other cultures.It is a palette that was idealized, renewed and transformed many times to create new aesthetic identities throughout the world. This resonates with my interest in communicating the duality of my own cultural background.
