Artist Statement

The Birdcage series examines the power imbalances and threats faced by women in patriarchal societies in Asia. Each birdcage is based on a mass-produced home, such as terrace houses and bungalows, turned into a gilded cage for its masked occupants. The perceived sense of security is a sham, as snake- like creatures and other monsters easily bypass the bars to threaten the caged inhabitants.

The pieces for this exhibition include cutouts on canvas and are part of the artist’s exploration in using cutouts to bring another dimension to a flat piece of work. This time, small sections are carefully cut out from a piece of stretched canvas, creating an intricate surface that allows for cast shadows. At the same time, the cutout cages and strings help to hold the main elements in place, creating an instance similar to an insect caught in a spider’s web. Certain characters, which are an intrusion to the birdcage homes, are cut from a separate piece of canvas and interlaced into the cutout canvas piece.
