"I am a Malaysian-born artist. In my work I seek to express a global spirit encompassing my sense of ancestral memory and ethnic identity as I attempt to build bridges between the past, present and future that transcends local knowledge to exemplify a world communality. I try to define my own identity through a personal voice and view enlarged by a critical awareness of contemporary aesthetics and events. Currently I am exploring the sculptural potential of fabric and paper interrelated with natural materials such as bamboo and twine in making works that are concerned with issues of the external and internal human condition. The materials used become an affecting metaphor for our fragile environment and our human vulnerability."
