Packing My Life; Packing, My Life
Oil on canvas
88 x 110 cm

Everyone will leave their home some day - to study in another country, to work in another city, start a family in a new abode or simply for a short vacation. Our life is marked by moving and travelling. Packing hence becomes quite an essential part of our life. When we pack things up in a suitcase and are ready to leave a place, what happens to our memories of that place? Can we easily brush these memories off or have they been permanently etched into our consciousness?

Grandma’s Kitchen
Mixed Media
15 x 22.5 x 30.5 cm

Home is the shelter for all sorts of storms, a place where you can always feel loved. Granny’s house is even more special as it is where we can be away from schoolwork and the nagging of our parents. The smoke stains on the wall are the proof of those savoury treats from grandma.
