Atlanta-based artist Jiha Moon has created these small ceramic sculptures exclusively for CUE Art Foundation. In her wry work, Moon combines visual references from East and West, challenging the notion of a static cultural identity. She has painted these fortune cookie sculptures with a composition that incorporates elements of Asian landscape painting with Angry Birds and floating text bubbles. Each piece comes inside a Chinese takeout box—another tongue-in-cheek nod to East/West syncretism.
From the artist: "Fortune cookies are one of most widely misunderstood concepts in America as Chinese food. I embrace this misconception as fun and loving object to celebrate what America is today."
