'You Alright' Installation Shot

Four installations and a book were created based on a written piece titled ‘You Alright’. The protagonist in the story is a painter who views himself as a consummate storyteller. He grapples with the challenges of an insular existence through the catharsis of painting. My visual practice channels this approach in dealing with queries raised in my writing, cumulating in an immersive narrative experiences where the viewer and I can partake as the protagonist or wilful observer. In composing central scenes in the story, materials are deliberately chosen with the same intention as rhetorical devices in writing - to deepen the viewer’s and my connection to queries and themes in the story. The interplay of light with materials seeks to persuade alternative perspectives and occasionally elicit answers.
