About the Artist

Evelyn Wong is a Chinese American interdisciplinary artist working across a variety of media, including drawing, painting, embroidery, book arts, and installation to explore themes of history, trauma, culture, race, and gender through the lens of personal narratives as well as her Asian American heritage. She is a survivor of multigenerational abuse and developmental trauma, and her experiences in navigating the complexities of being born into a dysfunctional family while growing up in the American South provided her with a unique perspective on what it means to be a woman of color in America today.
