Series: Mythological Bird (Envelopes)
Medium: Chinese ink, colour inks and acrylic paint on watercolour paper
I am currently trying to comprehend the irony of bountiful blessings on the Peranakan culture. One of the motifs often found on many Peranakan objects was the Eternal Knot. Its intertwining lines flow in a closed pattern, symbolising the interrelation between all phenomena. It expresses the union of the spiritual, human compassion and wisdom, and a necessary bind that creates harmony in our universe. I am still working on the interaction between the mythological bird and common motifs such as these.
