Deliberate Pictures

Deliberate Pictures is part of a continuing inquiry into concepts that explore surface relationships where visual perception prompts a tangible awareness of painting’s objecthood in relation to our own body and the natural world. These works retain a connection to the ‘thereness’ and ‘thingness’ of a painting, instead of contemplating it as ‘neither being nor nothingness’. They request viewers to comprehend the reality of art, the medium and the materials that is presented to them.
