In China, a meal is a social event meant to be experienced with others. Food is shared in a communal setting. Dishes are served “family style” to ensure all guests get a taste of everything. The principles of Chinese cuisine are entrenched in a theory of harmony, dictating that all facets of the senses are stimulated equally. A balance of tastes, textures, fragrances and colors are presented in a way that enhance and accent the other. To ensure the most enjoyable experience, ordering is traditionally done by a single person, typically the host.
Influenced by the fashion photography of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin she saw in magazines, an instructor introduced her to the work of art photographers such as Diane Arbus, Larry Clark, and August Sander. She currently lives and works between New York, Paris, and London.

What is Contemporary Art?
Helmut Newton Artist
No one seems to agree about the exact meaning of contemporary art. Critics, curators and historians define it in varying ways. One of the reasons for the confusion is that 'Contemporary Art' is preceded by 'Modern Art', and there is no precise agreement on when 'Modern Art' ended.

To make things even more complicated, a third term 'Postmodernist art' is sometimes used as a synonym for 'Contemporary Art.' Postmodernism denotes the main style-trend after Modernism, but it applies to dozens of other disciplines including architecture, music, film, literature, sociology, design, fashion, and technology, all of which have differing timelines, so it's hard to get a fix on exactly when postmodernism begins. Also, it's not synonymous with contemporary art. The latter refers to an era (a time period) while postmodernism is more of an attitude and style within this period. In due course, postmodernism will be superceded by a newer '-ism' but both will be forms of Contemporary art.
