Audio from Interviews

 The alignment of visual and audio aspects juxtaposes the efficiency with which a painted image captures someone and the time with which an audio recording deepens one's understanding of the subject. 

Identity and Fortune
A study on Asian American Identities through large-scale portraits

Identity and Fortune is a solo exhibition of artist June Chen Ahleman’s most recent work. The exhibition includes four large (4’x8’) oil-on-wood portraits of Asian Americans and audio from her interviews with the subjects. The installation draws on her interest in racial identity, the intersection of how we see ourselves and how others perceive us, and the role of fortune in shaping the relationship between the two.
