Cathy Lu // Peripheral Visions Blanket
Cathy Lu is an artist based in Richmond California. Her work manipulates traditional Chinese art objects and symbols as a way to deconstruct the assumptions about Asian American identity and cultural authenticity. By creating ceramic based sculptures and large scale installations, Luexplores what it means to be both Asian and American, while not being entirely accepted as either. Unpacking how experiences of immigration, cultural hybridity, and cultural assimilation become part of the larger American identity is central to her work.
