A Life in the Woods
Often referencing American pop culture and her Chinese background, Su Su’s work explores personal reminiscence, cultural anxiety, and societal deconstruction under globalization. Su Su’s view of global cultural distortion is reflected in the unconventional use of media and an experimental technique the artist has created of extruding oil paint via a medical syringe onto and through a porous synthetic fabric. The technique creates warped topographies of imagery resurfaced on the other side of the “canvas.” Her new Extrusion painting series illuminates how the mass media imagery of China and the United States is endlessly recycled and mixed, forced through a screen not unlike the extrusion process, until it becomes something new and unique - a jittery beautiful hybrid.
