My work explores the themes of the personal, faith, and culture;
an investigation of what makes up the identity of an individual. Having been born in Indonesia but currently living in Australia, my works
offer a bifocal perspective that translates the collision of cultural heritage within a liminal space. Fascinated by the visual language of materials, I investigate pertinent signifiers within objects as a tool to sharpen a thought and pose a question to the viewer. Understanding that nothing human creates is absolute, my practice leads to more questions instead of answers, provoking the desire to discover.
