Fine Art Final Portfolio Showcase
Growing up in a Buddhist family has made me learn to embrace the cultural aspect in particular Zen-Buddhist and minimalist practice of the everyday, a concept of simplicity that transmit the ideas of freedom and essence of living, through the practice of mindfulness.
In continuing on my study in the previous works, I am exploring and working on the context to seek for the balance of life in this impermanent and imperfect world. The process of study and exploration enables me to slow down and look deeply for the minute details that give one’s character, and to appreciating rather than perfecting. I embraced the concept of ‘Wabi-Sabi’ in my work and study, which is a practice of finding the beauty in imperfection, and of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay and death, learning that we will all return to the dust from which we came.
Also, I pay attention to the duality of things in life, mainly in the positive and negative spaces of the being. I try to stimulate a form of reflection on how we interact and, or respond to what we see commonly, by projecting the subject matter I’m studying through materiality to create a visual language.
