Artist Statement: I’m Yang from Indonesia! I made this artwork because I believe eyes are windows to the only truth a person can offer. Every mark on this piece of paper represents my honest self, and this work provides a chance to be seen for who I am. I want the viewer to see me. Not only as a student, a sister, or a daughter. But for all that I am. So with this portrait, I am letting you steal a glance and dive deep into my soul. And with it, my desire to be found…and to be truly seen.
