Transformation: Eclipse



Retailing exclusively at J.Edition, Singapore

Acrylic on canvas
210cm x 140cm

The piece is inspired by the solar and lunar eclipses – natural phenomena that occurs once in a blue moon as a result of the alignment of the Earth, Sun and Moon at the right place at the right time. I draw parallels between this with the union of two individuals, who have also been united by the forces of the universe at the right place at the right time.

No one is perfect – as represented by the two incomplete rings. The crossing and intersection of the two rings into one is symbolic of the union between two people, as they come together to become a fuller whole.

This artwork can also be displayed either in the landscape or portrait orientation, and its versatility is also part of its transformative nature.

About the ‘Transformation’ collection

Inspired by the journey of transformation and renewal, I first started working on this collection whilst on a sabbatical in Brittany, France. In the ‘Transformation’ collection, I play on creating water colour textures with acrylics, and allow the colours and textures on the canvas to speak for themselves. I start each piece in the collection not knowing how the final product will look, and the organic creation process is in itself a journey of transformation for the canvas and acrylics.

Each piece in the collection represents a different transformation story, and I hope it resonates with your own personal journey, and the story that you represent.
