It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. However, words are powerful and thus, are worth a picture as well. This exhibition is about ‘words’ and ‘messages to ponder.’ At times, I feel like it is harder to communicate emotions. This is why, I use the canvas to transmit these sentiments. These words are aimed to be ‘reactions’ from my personal experiences, and my perception of society. I used acrylics, candies, glitter, and other craft materials, and different techniques to inscribe the messages (such as painting and piping—as piping a cake!).
I will share more of this body of work with you this May at the Leaside-Toronto Public Library. The best is yet to come. I hope you can visit!
