'Rhinoceros' is part of the 'Feeling Blue' collection. 'Feeling Blue' was a series of mixed media paintings created in different shades of blue and blue-green during my most depressive period yet. Only occasionally warmed by other colours, this series of work depicted my inner feelings and emotions in a cold blue space; The blue sky and sea gave me a sense of freedom, tranquillity, peace yet sometimes solitude and melancholy. Unlike my earlier work, the mood of this collection didn’t diffuse any hint of fairytale and feminism. Between 2017-18, I spent most of my time with animals, which I could deeply connect with. I portrayed solitary animals such as a turtle and a moose, creatures which I saw in myself and perhaps ones that I could simply find a soulmate in amongst the art world that I create. Despite the inner turmoil, 2019 has been my favourite year of all time. I learnt from my past failures and mistakes, transformed my previous breakdowns into blessings and gradually progressed into a more mature, stable stage of personal growth and career. I interpreted my transformation in the language of art, especially in blue tones.
