Fly Away Birdie
This image can be interpreted as a dream, a nightmare, a memory, or a prediction. Abandonment due to race, gender, divorce, death, or other societal inequity leaves its indelible mark.
The US Chinese Exclusion Act of 1883-1943, and China's Cultural Revolution left women and their children separated from husbands and family, and often were totally abandoned.
This work was inspired by the artist's personal experience of racial discrimination, and also the story of a journalist in China who was separated from her family by the government during the Cultural Revolution leading to abandonment by her father.
