Internals series

When I had been living abroad during my university days, I found where we belong affected the standard of self-esteem to our own body images. 

 

In the United States and the UK, the aesthetics of the human body was mainly how healthy you were. 

 

However, during my temporary return from abroad, it was easy to have obsessive thoughts about being skinny as society internalized the peculiar East Asian aesthetic belief of having a skinny build.

 

Through this experience, there is a massive gap in aesthetic values between the Western and East, I got curious about representations of bodies.

 

In this Internals series, it is suggested that the beauty of curves, one of the components of human bodies, and experimented with creating a new perspective of body representation in art, particularly female bodies.
