Tracy Dunn

My art explores my experience growing up half Japanese; my parents were also each half Japanese, and all this has created an acute awareness in me of cultural "halfness." I dress flowers in kimono. I abuse those traditionally pretty and polite icons to show them decidedly personified: through precarious perspective, ill-fitting robes, rough and asymmetrical and unsettled. . . At times my paintings express the displacement and remoteness of not being whole, of being "almost" Japanese. At times they express the longing for wholeness and the discomfort of all this self awareness. And in the end, I hope to show the complexity and uniqueness to be found in being both "not quite Japanese" and "not quite not Japanese," in partial views and partial people.
