Boredom inspires Daniel Lai to create, as do “ideas that won't get out of my head.”
“My narrative sculptures tell stories of lived moments,” he says. “From food to social issues, inspirations abound for me. As an immigrant in the US who has studied linguistics, art history, and criminology, my art uses metaphors to respond to injustices and to explore the mundane, for example racism and the eggs I had for breakfast. Transcending the limitation of words, the expressions in my three-dimensional work encompass humor, intellect, and a variety of emotions.”
Daniel uses discarded books, clay and found objects to make his sculptures. “Incorporating fun is essential to my art-making processes. Paying attention to human experiences is inspiring to my art-making soul.”
Travel to a place I've never been before and emerge in the culture.
