Currently Working on...
'Expanding Stones' - In the process of constantly defacing the marks I am creating... ... isn't it interesting to see how obliterated marks, despite its ceasing presence, still exist in different forms. While new growths make their way through old piles of broken twigs and crinkled leaves .. what do we see?
I am currently exploring the idea of 'Secret Visibility'- Some thoughts about where and how this series started.. It is often thought that our sense of self and being in the world is based on what's outside us, basically everything around us. I find it interesting that this idea of co-existence doesn't translate itself quite effectively when it comes to comprehending and understanding the 'world' around us. Our experience shapes what we see and know, and what we accept as knowledge, and we experience this most convincingly through ourselves and with ourselves. Ironically, this is when the 'world' disappears, and and we are left with a limited view, a cropped lens. This series plays on the idea of 'hidden nature', which I am attempting to translate both literally and metaphorically.
I have completed my practice-based research that focuses on lost materials/objects belonging to my culture (a hybridised community in Southeast Asia known as the Peranakans). I focus on ideas of absence, memories, and obsolescence through the reimagination and reinterpretation of these objects with the hope of continuing their legacies in our changing world. I believe that every material/ object we create, own, or use, inevitably reflect aspects of human thoughts, desires and aspirations. It is interesting to see how some materials/ objects have resisted change, or have been modified and shaped by changing attitudes and beliefs over time, while some have faded or are silently fading into the background.
