Introduction
Installments of artist statements and a snapshot of their work in the exhibition will feature on a weekly basis on this blog spot.

The catalog of the exhibition is far more detailed in terms of opening addresses and artist’s biographies, curriculum vitae and statements etc. and moreover, is a holistic record of the exhibition itself.

Synopsis of Artwork: Catch the Light 1 & Catch The Light 2
I am fascinated by the way light shifts and changes the appearance of ordinary things and places. To see something in a new way is exciting. I often get lost in the looking while preserving the moment with my camera.

Techniques
Photography, digital printing, collage, painting, piercing and stitching on cotton, silk organza.
Size: 60 cm (width) x 300 cm (length) for each artwork.
