In my figurative paintings and workshops, I often reflect on my heritage, questioning its relevance to most aspects of my life.
Having been given the privilege to visit my father's birthplace of Malaysia during my childhood, I find that this privilege often manifests into my visually rich painterly language, which I then share with the World.
Such offerings take various forms. Self-portraits would incorporate painted Malaysian Hibiscus flower patterned backgrounds, figure drawings would be set in suggested exotic environments, whilst landscapes feature coloured sand to assure the idea of heritage, though ephemeral, is still present enough to make an impact on my life.
Although the presence of my heritage varies in subtlety across my activities, the fact there's no simple answer to its degree of relevance, keeps me motivated to make painting matter today.
