Cold Cuts (2013)
Last year I got invited to Bloom Arts Festival. Which is a local arts fest dedicated to young contemporary artists. I was pretty ecstatic about it. It felt really validating as an artist to be noticed by the community. Kinda wish I did better tho.
Here’s the story. I set out to paint a triptych about how some of us can trivialise death and dehumanisation. But, I ended up only really finishing one piece because I ran out of time. This was also during the time I was preparing for my Hong Kong trip. Anyway, I hope I get invited to the next one again. Next time, I’ll do something big.
Above is the only painting for my triptych that I actually finished. It was hung alone in Bloom, and it spoke about nothing because the piece was seen incomplete. Blegh.
I posted this late because I was feeling to bummed about the whole thing. I’m a bit over it now.
I need to get better at time management, I guess.
