Title

A Fabric of Many Threads: Asian Americans in Stockton

Format

Senior Art and Design Exhibition

Abstract/Artist Statement

With my work, I wanted to explore the Seven Deadly Sins: lust, greed, sloth, gluttony, envy, wrath, and pride. My photographs portray a more contemporary interpretation for each sin. I chose to use digital photography for this series because it is a media that is best suited for my contemporary theme. Each image is a black and white print with a colorful advertising slogan. These slogans are meant to compliment the sin and help show how our strong moral foundation has crumbled in today’s society. To aid in my artistic process, I turned to the writings of Dante Alighieri and the artwork of Barbara Kruger. Society has become so self-absorbed that we no longer recognize what constitutes a sin. I want to raise awareness about our daily activities, thoughts, and emotions in hopes that some people will be inspired to change their style of sinful living.
