Heritage is based upon a home rooted in two cultures. It explores their adverse relationship when both cultures equally dominate a household. When you are young you begin to grasp a sense of your identity and by adulthood you have clear grasp of who are and your place in society, but, for some, this is not the case. As a child, my father taught me how to live and behave under Korean mannerisms, while my mother, being more assimilated, brought a small sense of American culture and everyday life. When I was outside with the rest of the community, I left my Korean behaviorisms at home, and contrarily when I was home I left my American conduct at the door. The absorption of both created the lack of a concrete sense of belonging. This body of work revolves around my mother and father and explores how the oriental and the modern day American cultural aesthetic influenced their immediate surroundings. I explore my own identity by portraying how separate cultural ideals coincide in one household.
