Her Story 1- 5 (29.7 cm x 21 cm each), oil pastel on paper, 2015





The five paintings in diptych were done for an art exhibition entitled My Story, My Strength: Doodle for Change, which was organized by Women's Center for Change (http://wccpenang.org/) in Penang during the Georgetown Festival in 2015.
Domestic violence against women happens everyday and everywhere. We live with it but we do not know how to deal with it. It requires tremendous courage from the victim to decide to end the vicious circle of a power dynamic in a couple that is dysfunctional. At the same time, our society should provide more support for them by giving temporary shelters and counseling platform.
Her Story 1- 5, which measure 29.7 cm x 21 cm each, pair an abstract painting with a portrait of a wounded woman. Some said the diptychs were too colourful. Indeed, I see violence in all colours.

四朵花,
