Title of Major Work: Shadow painting

My body of work is a collection of artworks in the style and medium of traditional east and south asian ink painting where I have incorporated black and water to create landscapes and images to evoke emotion and curiosity.

My own interpretation in a western, modern way allows the audience to understand the perspective of the artist in relation to history and the present, a perspective and passion which derives from being Australian born coloured individual. It highlights the loss of history throughout cultures in terms of colonisation as well as western influence.

It talks about how tradition, religion and customs have all been altered and forgotten as modern society progresses and dismisses the origins and importance of spirit, natural world and culture.
