Taki Tori (Conversation)
March 2019 - Inaugural exhibition with The Rookery Artists
shown at The Menier Gallery, London
This series was part of the inaugural exhibition with The Rookery Artists Collective.
The inspiration is based on exploring identity.
Through conversation we find our identity, who we talk to, what info we share, how we listen and how we are heard.
Being multi-lingual has many challenges and advantages. Translating something literary from one language to the other can come out as a whole different statement. Sometimes hilarious and sometimes not so.
Living a life lost in translation, makes for very interesting conversations.
I enjoyed painting this series way more than putting it into words.
