The painting No One's Wonderland is designed as my conceptual self-portrait, reflecting my personal history of living in two different countries and interacting with two different cultures l employed the pop culture images that surround all of us, but interpreting them through the unique associations in my own mind. For me, creating a painting is like the anticipation of watching a movie come onto the screen, where l enter another world. No One's Wonderland is created in four panels with the linear story and longer horizontal canvas referencing the scale and shape of a movie screen.
