This is a series of print installations focusing on images based on the small gifts that my mother gives me. They are her way of instilling traditional Chinese values and beliefs. Having immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong at the age of five, her gifts are symbolic of the life that we left behind. They are both familiar and foreign. This series of prints attempts to reconcile my Canadian upbringing with the traditions and values of my Chinese background—as perceived by my mother’s ready-made gifts.
