Being an avid lover of all things green, natural, found and collected, these are some of the things I happen to keep. Certainly had fun in the manual glitches that occurred in these images. Simple pleasures!
This ongoing project/exploration was inspired by a popular science experiment, which I find really interesting, therapeutic and beneficial for the soul - I first came to demonstrate this experiment atJack In The Box, Springing Ideaswith a few close friends discussing a topic on Experimental Audio Visual. Still in an experimentation stage, I am yet to develop more findings using different substances and chemical reactions.
"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." - John Burroughs
The Botanist is a form of my alter ego; a persona that loves to be one with the outdoor and nature as a way of healing and building one’s character. In this story, a botanist called Flora travelled far and wide to a lush land of flowers, trees and plant named Springland fought with nature’s most famous enemy; Caterpillars.
Personal traditional collage collection, cause I like to make shit with my hands! I was so stressful when I did this, I ended up giving some of them away but nevertheless, it was a good experience of releasing emotions on paper. I came across happy accidents while at it; spilled water on print!
Medium : Magazines, thick black paper, mounting board, mural paint, print and other mixed medias.
"But when I was thirteen, I began to sort of sing in my neighbourhood." - Ruben Blades
Welcoming the new year 2013, I have never felt more alive than I was before. Thus, for my new year resolution I aimed to have new beginnings, new experiences, to be wild, to be curious, to work hard, and to play hard! A commissioned artwork for IM Magazine’s January Issue “Breaking Out”, spot the difference between these two images!
Medium : Watercolour paper, watercolour, and digital manipulation.
