escape/entrap at NTU ADM Portfolio

escape/entrap is a series exploring the idea of a different reality as experienced by the artist.

A common sentiment among millennials today is their wish to keep seeing new places, to leave wherever they usually work and live. They agonize over how small their world is and how there is nothing new. It is as if being trapped in a maze of our own making, be it in the physical or the emotional sense. Through this series, the artist attempts to create an escape on another plane of reality, however temporary, within the trappings.

The escape is created through learning how to see again through clearer eyes, without preconceived notions, without memories, without attachments.

Flying Whales at NTU ADM Portfolio

Flying Whales (2016)

Dreams are made of impossible stuff and whatever catches your fancy. At first glance, it is reminiscent of something. Yet, after a little observation, there is something not quite right. It toys with our perception, questioning our initial judgement. The artwork above is made up of parts from whales, clouds, waves, fireflies, and your imagination.
