When I was a child, I used to spend hours laying on the grass watching everything flying high into the sky. I loved to watch birds fly, insects swarm, and clouds move, they all seemed to me like a peace flag, liberating themselves from gravity. They all have a strong visual connection to my childhood perception of freedom , joy and peace .
These paintings and installations are discussing my personal interpretation of peace in relationship, the liberation of ideas and concepts symbolised by flying birds outside the frame of canvas. They were exhibited at Serenade art House in 2012 as part of "Notion of Peace''group exhibition curated by Karen Obling.
