About

Cecile Chong uses encaustic and mixed media to create cross-culture narratives. She juxtaposes appropriated images from vintage children's books and other found images to address cross-cultural encounter, the process of cultural assimilation and the development of individual identity. The artist is especially interested in this subject having been born in South America of Chinese parents and having learned about her ancestors' culture as an outsider.
