Part 2 of the ongoing three-part traveling solo exhibition The exhibition will travel to key places which inspired and pivoted the work produced.
The work explores personal experiences of leaving home, long-distance relationships, life in constant transit and the phases in-between. It also investigates the idea of home, the journey towards finding it, particularly as a migrant. It delves into 'home' as an abstract feeling found in many places, people and experiences. Most of the work is also ambiguous enough to allow viewers to add their own interpretation or connect with their own personal experiences. Botanical elements, representations of eyes and wispy figures and beings inhabit the drawings. Strange characters populate the work and act as modern-day allegories of nostalgia, yearning, and nomadism.
