Llyn Stransky is an Asian-American A.F.A.B. concept artist living in Los Angeles, CA.
Her practice encompasses painting, video art, installation/sculpture, modeling, and performance.
My work concerns the normalization of my own existence – that is, that of the Asian-American diaspora, with particular emphasis on the female experience. By taking control of the selective representation of my own body, I am able to reclaim the autonomous authorship which was stolen from me and those possessing bones, skin, and eyes like mine. Asian-Americans have been systemically denied participation in media culture, and even today, “yellowface” is considered socially acceptable and televisable. Through repeatedly inserting and asserting my body, as an Asian-American womyn, into culture, I seek to manipulate the future through tenacious repetition and audacity and carve out and actively occupy space for myself and my own.
