Through translation, meaning is lost, words cease to exist, histories misunderstood, and wordless memories we are forced to forget.
Sun invites you to interpret the metaphorical language of painting in an expanded field.

In Search [indistinct conversations] is an experience of paintings, digital images, and installations that ruptures language, syntax, and perspective to investigate and recreate the process of interpretation. Sun interweaves painting, textiles, calligraphy, embroidery, and written text with the weightless waves and abstract codes of digital technology to explore the connotations embedded within these elements. Collectively, they form a psychological landscape where we re-route meaning and navigate between fragments that exert opposite gravitational pulls.
