Taipei Tableau No. 1 & No. 2 are an exploration of the influences that inform Taiwanese visual culture. Everyday objects found in Taipei's wet markets and a typical household are paired with the country's exotic fruit. The items are arranged in an ikebana style that references Taiwan's 50 years as a colony of Japan - resulting in a blended culture that embraces both calm, restrained Japanese form and the loud palette and commercial substrates of Chinese aesthetics.
