My grandfather was born in the Canton region of China and came to America to pursue the American dream. For decades he was the manager of George Locke’s 100 acre Bartlett pear orchard located next to the town of Locke. The Locke farm was situated in the Sacramento river delta region – a rich agricultural area created by a network of levees built by Chinese laborers. All family members featured on these panels were part of the region’s agricultural heritage. A cast bronze Bartlett pear and US currency represent my family’s agricultural heritage and my family’s pursuit of the American Dream. MalPina Chan was born in California and received her BFA from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. Her primary medium is mixed media collage incorporated into prints, glass works and artist books that reflect on cultural inheritance and societal effects on personal culture. Immigration, cultural shifts, and current discourse propel her work. She is a graduate of the Artist Trust EDGE Professional Development program and a recipient of an Artist Trust GAP (Grants for Artist Projects).
