Title: The Art Of Separation
Medium: Coffee filter paper, wire and food colouring
We are all separated by something. Sometimes the barrier is physical, other times it is beyond physical. Sometimes, it stretches beyond time and space. But one thing is certain, the feeling of separation is all the same.
This artwork aims to invoke emotional responses from the audience through the notion of separation which brings about sweet memories prior to, as well as melancholy once separation sets in. By empathising with the flowers reaching out on both sides of the glass beaker, the audience will experience both intimacy and separation, a paradox in itself.
