Imin's woodcut, according to her site, is titled "Bananas: Yellow on the Outside, White on the Inside." We love the print, but we're going to fall back on the art-critic cop-out and quote her artist's statement: "…Printmaking allows me to commercially exploit my own cultural identity in order to directly confront dominant society's cultural fetishism; the imposition of exotic 'otherness'; and the exploitation and commodification of culture." Come on, we've all written those things, everyone knows if you want to know more about an artist, check out her MySpace page Mmmm, Gojo! Now we're talking.

Back to the Shop.
