Klyde Breitton - Yin Yang

陰陽 (yin yang)

陰陽 (yin yang), 2017 
24 x 36”

陰陽 (yin yang) is a self portrait exploring the multiple binaries at work in the construction of Asian American male identity. Springing from the interracial desire for white women, the work visualizes the relationships within, between, and outside of the dualities of male/female, white/non-white, subject/object, and self/other.
