Statement

SERIES STATEMENT
Combining digital photography and found images, "3x10(3)" is an exercise inspired by the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy with 1000 hands and 1000 eyes. The series is built upon the premise that divine existence is immanent and interpenetrates every thing. It extends beyond time, space and culture. The eyes and hands represent creation and ideas. The mouths represent humanity and our pursuit of desires.

BIO
Born in Hong Kong, a graduate of the School of the Art Institute, and named in 2008 by the Chicago Artists' Coalition as a Chicago Artist to Watch, ATYL is a multi-disciplinary artist. Her concept driven work incorporates themes of childhood, femininity, urban life, and the delicate interplay between human connection, their interaction with each other and their environment. She has shown recently at ARC Gallery, Evanston Art Center, Hyde Park Arts Center, and Woman Made Gallery, and is one of the artists selected for the City of Chicago Riverwalk public art project.
