About the exhibition

Underneath the Veneer

The truth lies underneath the veneer.

But why?

It is convenient. Because.The world has a way of passing judgement in a fraction of a second.So it becomes convenient to don a cloak for privacy and shelter.And over time, this cloak becomes part of our DNA.But if we lift up a corner, and peek in, there we are! The quintessential us!

The works in this exhibition celebrate the vibrancy and multi-faceted nature of what lies underneath the veneer. It is complex and abstract. It is bursting with colour, energy and spirit, and serves as a reminder to us that every now and then … perhaps most of the time? … we should come out and air our true selves.

About the artist

I believe art is fundamental to quality of life and it is inbuilt into our genes to crave aesthetics. Many people aren’t aware of this and my desire is to bring this consciousness to people in my practice.

I have trained in drawing in Julian Ashton in Sydney, painting in Central St Martins in London and lithography at The Art Students League in New York. I spent a year in London and Europe doing the ‘Grand Tour’ exploring museums and galleries and absorbing the wonderful music offered in their concert halls.

My professional life is in IT. This guides my creativity with process and discipline allowing me to merge both my left and right brains in my creative works. Most of my works are hung in corporate offices in New York and Hong Kong and in homes in Australia.

I have travelled widely and have been exposed to many cultures. This experience informs my art urging me to explore forms and approaches to produce diversity and freshness. Human connections make life worth living, and if we cannot connect physically, perhaps we could meet through art.
