Artist’s statement

Telling the story of my parents’ struggle for survival and freedom, my work explores their personal tragedies in their experience of migrating to Australia. My artwork addresses the pernicious repercussions of war, and its effect on individuals. Acting as a silent narrative, I have captured the intensity of the subject matter by creating a series of small-scale drawings. This provides viewers with a new dimension of understanding, enabling them to reflect on and appreciate the story as a whole.
