The medium of painting and drawing has become an insistence way of connecting my work more comprehensively. And I blend painting, drawing and sculpture harmoniously. I implicitly touched on many aspects of art, society, history, memory, responsibility and turbulent social situations. I completed my Master of Fine Art at RMIT in 2009. I have exhibited in China, Australia, Kurdistan, Germany and Singapore. I was a finalist in awards, including the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, Adelaide Perry Prize for drawing, National Works on Paper, Rick Amor Drawing Prize, Hutchins Art Prize, Siemens-RMIT Fine Art Scholarship Awards, etc.
'At first, the Play Tape appears to be a random assemblage of tape. The perception changes when the messy tapes appear to be trompe l'oeils. Play Tape becomes self-critical of aesthetic, abstract and figurative.
PLAY Tape oscillates between abstract and figurative, focused on the openness of composition through gestural painting, pattern and chance. I use the trompe l'oeils as a pictorial strategy to attend to the spectator through the optical illusion. I like this structural component, which forms evocative pieces comprised of interfaces to analyse the painting as an image and an object.'
