In slice of life, I document intimate, but mundane memories. I paint them to celebrate and share the specific small joys of coming of age as a gay Chinese American trans boy, immersed in the chaos of Bay Area queer youth subculture.

I combine archival practices with a raconteur's approach to create images that tell anecdotes full of laughter, nostalgia, absurdity, and yearning. I hope viewing slice of life gives you the same feeling you get from flipping through a friend's scrapbook filled with old film photos -- grainy and blurry, but memories still perfectly preserved.
