Unpeeling (2019)
video; 3:01 min

Second Place Award

I started with one of my grandma’s after-dinner habits: peeling oranges and share them with her family. The act of peeling oranges symbolizes sharing, connecting, and healing. Peeling the orange reveals the vulnerable center, and metaphorically this action exposes the artist’s desire for sharing. I see my art as another form of prayer. Every painting, video, and installation is a form of resting and healing.
