Artist’s statement

Transient and short-lasting are the qualities of my artwork in the physical, literal and metaphorical sense. Each subject (dandelion, cloud, bubble and rose) was carefully chosen to symbolise different aspects of ephemeral (short-lasting) beauty. My artwork simply reminds the audience of the beauty and the humble things in life that we all tend to miss merely by overlooking them; or with a blink of an eye.

Influencing artists: Shaun Tan, Tsukushi Akihito, Hayao Miyazaki
