About the Exhibition
Seeing that this is her first solo art exhibition, the artist has raise the eternal question of "Who am I?" through her daily sketch project. Art is a personal quest into her emotional inner world and this art exhibition explores the themes of identity and cultural heritage through personal time and memory.
The artworks are inspired and has their roots in Peranakan culture. She grew up in a balanced world of possibilities. A household of strong traditions imbued with western concepts, surrounded by Nyonya ware and furniture as well as modern technology. In a promised land that was called home but was really foreign. A world that was simpler, happier, when her grandparents and parents were still alive. A time that has been lost, but hopefully not forgotten.
This exhibition celebrates and cherishes life, love and the human spirit.
