    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Picnic”. The original work was produced after coming back from a two-week artist residency at Siena in 2007. I spent for a few days in Florence for my research before heading to Siena, and the experience in Florence has changed my art practice forever. The work was selected for the National Open Art Competition in Chichester in the same year.


      The couple is often featured in my life-scape works. In the 21st century, the meaning and social structure of the relationship as a “couple” has transformed from the conventional idea. However, as I was born as an orphan, I’m rather intrigued by this conventional relationship without which I couldn’t exist. On a balmy autumn day, in the long shadows of trees cast on a bright green was a middle-aged couple enjoying a picnic. It is my homage to all couples.
