My current work is a series of small to medium size oil figurative oil painting presented in an installation. These paintings are psyche-scape of a person’s inner mind, or episodes of a larger narrative, focused around different aspect of my research. The body of work reflect my interpretation of the education system and conformity, communal behaviours, maternal bonding and the role of religion. They are unevenly sized and positioned within an installation setting, providing a more dynamic way of looking. The smallest paintings on wood blocs functioned as keys to the major paintings, offering more departure points to address the wider conceptual framework. Each group of paintings manifest on their allocated wall, using different means of connecting devices such as threads and black tapes, each group established their own form of networking. They may also represent a fable of an apocalyptic world, a trajectory of a person’s growth and a mind-map that reflects my contemplation on the issue.
