SHORT DESCRIPTION

Vanitas and genre paintings are significant sources of my work. In vanitas paintings, I like the way their artists introduced moral themes into visual representations. These baroque works have influenced me both conceptually and formally, for I particularly like their cold color palette and dramatic light uses. Take, for example, Vestiges presents my interest of Dutch Baroque. It begins with the painting called The Little Street by Johannes Vermmer. The video leads viewers experience different spaces and gestures of performing. I tried to associate the female figure with Dutch genre paintings, where they portrait females in different roles.
