"Eat Bittersweet" Lithograph
Lithograph of "Eat Bittersweet" (2020).
The Chinese adage "to eat bitter" means that one must suffer through hard work and hardships in order to achieve and grow. While it's a notion that's often abused in "tiger parenting" culture, it is still useful as a reminder from time to time: except, my Chinese-American take on the phrase is to "eat bittersweet, " to remember that sweet moments exist alongside the struggles.
"Eat Bittersweet" is part of a larger series, bringing Asian American cultural references to the often Euro-centric history of still lifes.
