Artist Statement

I see sound, I hear textures, I touch smell.


I aim to stimulate viewers’ introspection by depicting the relations between human consciousness of the self and the wider world.   


My artwork is the imaginary visualisation of the in-betweenness: sensorial - conceptual; inbreath - outbreath; always at the intersection between my own identity and the social context in which I exist. Body and soul are inextricably linked in my work and translated as abstractions of cells animated by layers of vivid colours though a gestural technique.

My instinctive drawings are like a child in a mother’s womb swaying to the rhythm produced by the touch and sound of my pencil lines and brushstrokes. 


Through installations, I reveal the act of playing with physical textures, volumes, weights, adding an extra spatial dimension to my art. They incorporate industrial materials or household-designed objects of daily use into a perpetual dialogue, to create new meanings and sensorial stimuli for the viewer.


Inspired by contemporary art and practices, I am interested in further experimenting with sound and mass-produced materials as well as tackling issues of our global society, such as hybridisation and identity.
