The premise for this exhibition is to make a group of 4 to 5 paintings and explore their connections to one another with an underlying theme of Intimate Worlds.

In exploring this theme, it came to mind that perhaps it’s a prerequisite to have an ‘outer’ and ‘inner’ world to arrive at an intimate world. Each painting was individually conceived with its own characteristics and feel. They were then further resolved as a whole after juxtaposing and assigning them their place in the group. As the work developed, I was taken by the emotional narrative that emerged through the play of visual texture of the paint and the dynamic interactions of the shapes of the paintings through both: from within, and from the shapes these paintings. Towards the end, I thought the group was telling me the title of its configuration: we watched as she did her handstand single handedly.
