The Colors In Life
Most of the time, we were preoccupy by bits and pieces of chores. We simply don't have time to deal with the cries and protests happening on the inside. The traffic in our mind is busy and rushing. To keep everything in order, we set priority on what we believe is important, which most of the time, is pursuit of material. The ridiculous fact is: all the efforts put after materials were intended to bring us happiness. But we had neglected our heart at first! How could materials give happiness to the heart that are dying from neglection?
Hence, I created this series of work that I think as 'soul mirrors', to help you 'resurrect' your 'dying' heart. Each of them are finely rendered, carefully composed, rich with symbols and philosophy. They are my interpretation of the profound wisdom inspired by stories of all kinds: nature, people, culture and experience. Through these works, you are invited to explore all the possibilities within you. When you look at them, you're looking at a mirror. It doesn't reflect what you already know on the outside. It shows you what's inside with you. Be patient, be open and be aware, of any movement in your heart. Pay attention to what they are saying. You would be surprise you have them with you all the time.
