Artist's Statement

Naormi Meiija Wang, a Chinese-born artist based in New York, I'm interested in Freudian psychology and human nature.My works in various media, most often with the human body, which distorts, overlaps and ultimately reveals in dream-like states. The body, the genealogical origin of the ego according to Freud , is my main focus.
All emotions are expressed through its manipulation.All the elements of my work are based on a what I records or remembers of my deep dreaming after I awakes. Each movement and frame presented is a signifier of a signified (a la Saussure): a detail originating in my unconscious mind. My images are dream-like. They represent reality and fantasy in much the same way the unconscious mind merges fact and fiction during deep sleep, And just as some dreams stay with us during the course of a day or days, my work carries the same emotional impact.
