"I wouldn't know any other way" is a part of a series of recent works that are constituted with hues of yellow as my aesthetic and personal excavation of lived experiences with my body. It considers a specific inheritance of racial politics in America and my reckoning with the idea of 'yellowness' while seeking emotional refuge and space for my placeless body to reside."
