Description

Lo’s work, both ceramic and mixed media, integrates themes from her childhood, her family, Asian culture, and language. As a second-generation child of an immigrant family, Lo attempts to reconcile the culture she was born into with the culture she inherited. Lo’s work integrates narratives from her amity’s history, from their beginnings as wok makes in their ancestral home of Wu Zhen to her parents’ immigration to the United States in 1943, during the great Chinese exodus connected to the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese civil war between the communist and Kuomintang armies. Throughout her career she has created a massive oeuvre of narrative ceramic work which is humorous, playful and witty, juxtaposed with symbolism, cultural heritage and serious issues.
