The current series of works is an extension from my solo show “Decode” held in 2020. Production process in Chinese ink was disrupted during the pandemic, and I decided to paint on canvas. Finding comfort and joy in this medium during the lockdown meant more than I could asked for. Painting in continuously during that period brought new found calmness and joy in the process. Through these works, I share my joy and passion with the viewers, and I hope they resonate with my paintings too.
