Transition / Escapism Study

Transition / Escapism Study: Party Animal, collage (2013) ; Landscape, acrylic, color pencils and pen on paper (2014)


This is an exhibition that highlights how ordinary objects are repurposed; how common things evolve and transform when enmeshed with creativity. These are exercises of perception and possibilities, where imagination, adaptability, wit and ingenuity are significant factors. Rising above the culture of waste, these creatives convert familiar materials and items outside of its original intent. The sensibilities of everyday articles are re-characterized and given new identities. domestiCITY merges art, design and craft to fuse divides, to promote resourcefulness and to provoke conversations.
