Perfect Storm - oil

20"W x 24"L

"Faith McLaughlin, known artistically as Mei Mei, is a 22 year old artist based in Tampa, FL. She has earned a BA in Studio Art from the University of South Florida along with a Certificate in Art History. Adopted from China as an infant into an Irish-American family, she has struggled to identify with eastern and western culture because of the cultural and physical dissonance. Due to this struggle, she feels highly influenced by western culture, but tries to connect with her Chinese background despite the American veil placed over her. She states, "over the past decade, my work has continued to develop and explore the concepts of tradition, identity, and symbolism. Maintaining a balance between realism and painterly qualities allows the viewer to see my work as it is-a painting. I strive to initiate a conversation about perception and identification by creating self-reflective works through traditional compositions."
