Joey Xia

Joey Xia’s work engages with issues related to his peer, culture and art history under the backdrop of unfathomable globalization. His practice is exploring the transition and mutation of the cultural symbol through a psychoanalytic manner. Xia’s practice is accumulations of material, texture and form, fused together with a mixture of craft-based techniques, which he sees as materials of utterance in themselves – to expressing emotion and tension simultaneously.
