Artist Statement


“Emergence” is an ongoing photographic project of architectural abstraction in black and white. Started in 2017, the collection surveys the visual language of shape, form, line and the absence of color in an architectural environment. Departing from the existing reality, these monochrome architectural abstracts create compositions independent of time and space. The artist drew her inspiration from Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Designed by Frank Gehry, this venue has a strong nautical theme. The intent of the collection is to present the edifices as ships emerging from the ocean, bringing the facades to light.

Influenced by her father who taught architecture in the university, the artist employs a fine-art approach to exaggerate curves and folds. Fascinated by the interplay of light and shadows, she has gone through in-depth studies of when and how the sun light shines on buildings. The scouting research often involves multiple location visits. This calculated methodology enables higher precision when capturing images. The overall vision is to extract and distill from the primary design expression. The intricate study of undulating metallic surfaces invites viewers to endless imaginations and experience the unique spatial relationship of a built environment.

Curatorial Statement


Is a series of black and white architectural abstract photographic images taken at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The works in the series offer different studies of light, shadows and shapes of a built environment. The absence of color emphasizes the buildingsʼ lines and curves while the flowing metallic surfaces bear a resemblance to yachts sailing in the ocean. The series is presented with partial views of the actual architecture , thus raising the viewersʼ curiosity in asking how the building would look in reality.
