Birth and Death Are The Same Thing (2015). 213cm x 172cm. Acrylic on found wooden doors.
Painting for The Mill x WeJungle's Destruction and Rebirth group show at The Mill, a 1961 warehouse in Singapore that will soon be demolished. The diptych was done on 2 doors removed from the Mill, as a statement about the continuity of life. The doors are metaphors for entrances and exits as we go through endless cycles of rebirth and death, which are temporary and transitionary states of being and becoming.
Show opens from 31 Jan-14 Feb 2015 from 11am-8pm daily at 5 Jalan Kilang. Details here on Facebook.
