Our identities are defined and influenced by our history, society and the culture of our immediate surroundings. We stand at a crossroad where nationalities and localities intersect. In this global cultural environment where identities and boundaries converge, one seeks to identify oneself. Living in a post-colonial, post-modern global environment, I explore a continuum of cross-cultural negotiation.
The works in the show investigate the synthesis between these binary oppositions such as, east - west, local - global, ancient - modern, oriental - occidental and how they coexist to encode my work. I am interested in unification of these oppositions allowing for the development of a new hybrid language where these oppositions unite and fuse together; they exist in this in-between, grey space.
