Fault Lines: The Japanese American Experience by Sandra Honda is up now at the Adell McMillan gallery. Come explore the stunning work spanning countless mediums.

A reception is planned on February 2nd @ 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We hope you stop by, meet the artist, and have some food! Follow @uovisualarts for more details.

Sandra Honda’s work is on view until February 4th. You can check out more of the artist’s work at @sandrahondaart on Instagram.

 

Artist Statement:

I am a self-taught interdisciplinary visual artist and writer. I am Japanese American. In my drawings, paintings, photographs, and 2D and 3D assemblages and installations, I interrogate what it means to be Asian and American in today’s America. Today is a reflection of the past and a lesson toward the future. In the past, Japanese Americans were subjected to the trauma of ethnically-based, mass incarceration during World War II. Growing up, it was important to my parents and grandparents, all of whom were in the concentration camps, and to the US government for me to fit seamlessly into my school, my neighborhood and eventually my marriage and professional life. In the process, the Japanese part of my identity faded though deeply cherished. Through art, I work to reclaim my identity, excavating and rebuilding self while excavating and rebuilding layers of ink on paper drawings. I dig and tear into paper, always in a back-and-forth conversation between that which is random and that which is intentional. These works very often begin with poetry I write.  

But my work is not just about me, it is about an urgency for the moment and future. We sit at this critical juncture when we must not look away from systemic racism and a time when we must move toward true democracy and not away. I do my art to build understandings of the past as present and future. My hope is that these understandings in some small way help us make better choices going forward.

March 8 5:30 p.m.
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Redwood Auditorium

Britt Wray’s fascinating and hopeful talk demonstrates the emotional and existential effects of living in a warming world—and how we can get through them together. Although anxieties surrounding the climate crisis can cause us to burn out, give up, and question deeply personal decisions like whether to have children, working through these anxieties can unlock a deep capacity to care for and act on climate issues. We need to look at the climate crisis as a whole—not just the political or technological issues, but the mental health consequences as well. These effects can be severe, even leading people affected by climate events to experience PTSD and a loss of identity. To combat this, Britt presents practical tips and strategies for healthily and productively dealing with our emotions, living with climate trauma, and strengthening our communities so we can combat climate change together.

Britt Wray is a Human and Planetary Health Postdoctoral Fellow at the Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health. Her research focuses on the mental health impacts of the ecological crisis. Wray is the creator of the weekly newsletter about “staying sane in the climate crisis” Gen Dread (gendread.substack.com) and author of Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Crisis (Knopf, 2022).  Her first book is Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics and Risks of De-Extinction  (Greystone Books, 2017). She has hosted several podcasts, radio and TV programs with the BBC and CBC, and is a TED speaker.
