Description

Her explores the original loss of the Hmong homeland and a recent, traumatic and divisive incident in the Hmong community—the swindling of over 400 Hmong elders in the United States via a fraudulent investment scheme. Studio portraiture is combined with images of tropical, greenhouse foliage to highlight themes of displacement, geography and the collective yearning for home.

Her is the 2019 artist in residence for the Amy Marie Sears Memorial Visiting Artist Series.
