Offerings is an ongoing project where I pay homage to people close to me that have passed away; by creating non-figurative portraits that take the form of small scale sculptural assemblages and disintegrate over time. Inspired by ancestor worship and offering altars commonly found in Vietnamese Tet traditions where offers of fruit, flowers and burning incense are made to honour ancestors. The different materials/found objects I use to create each individual conglomeration relate to my own cultural identity, the identity of the deceased, evoked memories and superstitions.
