Owen's Artist Page
I enjoy making art that explores societal roles and expectations, familial ties, and cultural identity. Growing up as a gay Asian boy in a strict religious environment has been challenging - I want to create art that people can resonate with, allowing them to insert their own interpretations and interwoven narratives while still maintaining the fact that it is still intimate and personal to me.
Title: “Orange Lilies”
Description: An acrylic painting that features orange lilies, flowers that play on the idea of duality, contradictions, and conflicting features. Orange lilies are meant to represent feelings of hatred, pride, and contempt; lilies in general are flowers of sadness but they can also represent renewal, rebirth, and restoration of the soul. All of these opposing connotations are excellent metaphors for the flawed nature of the human spirit as well as for twin siblings who can be seen as the two halves of the same coin.
