Rea Tajiri Characteristics

Rea Tajiri's work plays with viewer expectations by employing strategies of media deconstruction to highlight the way images attain meaning and how a viewer or reader supplies an image when one is lacking. Educated at CalArts and currently living in New York, Tajiri's work draws on both American and Japanese images to explore issues of cultural representation, including material that is systematically obscured from these representations.
