Living and practising between the UK and Singapore, I explore nature metaphorically, through a diasporic lens. The concept of place plays a significant role in my work, with links to geography, culture, and personal. In my ink paintings, I seek emergent knowledge in the interstices between the natural world that surrounds me, and my Southeast Asian cultural heritage.
I exploit the material language of flatness, and the fluidity of the Chinese ink and water-based mediums to define, undefine and redefine inherent boundaries and forms. Poring through indexical imprints of germination, growth, decay and regeneration, I seek to paint from the 'inside-out'.
