Two collections–Oiled Impressions and Penmai–are on display at ArtsBuzz of Central Library, from 4-18 March.
The immediate surrounding has always had an enchanting effect on me, whenever I pause and take it in. “Oiled Impressions” represents just that collection of moments: moments I took in, moments I yearn to be in, and moments I dream of. “Penmai” is a collection that is very close to my heart. “Penmai” is the Tamil word for “feminine” and women have always been a source of inspiration for my thoughts. The kindness of a kitchen help, the grace of a dancer, the innocence of a little girl, the love of a grandmother, the labour of a spinach seller, the vivacity of a mother, are just some of my inspirations.
This is my very first exhibition at NUS and I hope you will take a turn around the world through my tinted shades.
