Chinn Wang's current work explores ideas of lineage and identity, in addition to complicated transitions in desire, expectancy, chance, and mortality. The literal and metaphorical shape of things permeate her perception of the world as she navigates dynamic and disorienting upheaval through her experiences as an artist, educator, daughter, parent, and citizen. Wang endeavors to reveal a unique dilemma of parenthood—the ceding of one identity for another and the perpetual grappling with a complex and layered sense of self. The parallel pathways of gratitude and yearning, yields both symmetry and contradiction in her studio practice and in her life.
