A selection of autobiographical work by Chinese Turkish artist Rei Xiao. Based in Boston, USA and Istanbul, Xiao explores personal stories filled with emotional intensity, symbolism, and sarcasm as a way of coming to terms with challenging moments and curiosities:
“I tackle trauma and surreal perception of the conscious and matter through dark humor and whimsical imagery. Through this, I use art as a means of healing and investigating mysteries of my consciousness and interconnectedness between all things and beings.”
