This series represents my personal interpretations on the complexity of our being; the month we are born, the date, the time, family and racial backgrounds, birth order and most importantly the star sign that make up our huge spectrum of personalities.
Also exhibited in a friendly and intimate session of poetry reading, Hello Poetry at Rumah Titi.
Medium : Digitally manipulated images and Adobe Photoshop.
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.
