Drawing and Painting

“I aim to explore ideas of the Asian female identity, to understand how one values themselves and how that value is determined by others. Translating these works through oil paint and canvas, my works tackle the issues of guilt, confusion and uncertainty embedded in the history of Ornamentalism, by looking closely at the relationship between the historical canon of still life paintings and the experiences of Asian women in present day. Ultimately, these works are a reflection of myself.”

Profile Picture
Hau Pham is an emerging artist based in Vaughan, Ontario. She is a graduate of OCAD University, with a BFA in Drawing and Painting and a minor in English. She serves as the Programs Assistant at Xpace Cultural Centre and has experience as a Visual Arts and Art History Educator at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Her work draws heavy influence from her South-East Asian Heritage and Buddhist beliefs. Her practice relies on the intersection of one’s relationship with the object, and the perception of Asian women in the western world. Hau’s research and inspiration is largely pulled from her personal experiences, and from her friends and family who fit into the same group identity. Her works are both a reflection and investigation into the guilt, exhilaration, and confusion of the Asian feminine experience.For inquires about purchasing work or commissions, please contact Hau through instagram at @hauu_pham or email at hautpham0@gmail.com.
