The thesis draws focus on the prevalence of false notions of race and beauty. Superficial and hierarchical differences are usually based on what is seen from without but is thought, perceived and manifested from within.
The symbolic material of the idea is the human skin, which is simulated and presented in the form of clothing. Skin, being the largest organ, does not only protect the body but also exposes it. Like skin, clothing does the same function and public presentation, except that it is artificial and manufactured just as standards and hierarchical differences are. The context of the closet hints a sense of private ownership, the same as how questionable notions of race and beauty are consciously kept in silence.
Soft sculpture may deform and might suggest fatigue, relating to how the narrow standards of beauty may pull or hide people’s perception of their own identity, and potential.
The use of paint in making the soft sculpture intends to push the limitations of traditional confinement of medium and its specificity in different art forms.
