Exhibition Theme

“In Search of Hidden Meaning” is the theme of the exhibition. What is the hidden meaning behind the passage that you write or get inspired by?

Anything that is thought of or being written, whether a poem, a manifesto, a story, a sentence, or even a word, bring with it different energies and connects with people in different ways. People interpret something that is written in different ways. Are these interpreted meaning hidden in the written words or are they our inner reflections? How do you reflect upon a written passage and interpret it visually through your work. Do you write it directly in a beautiful way? Do you decorate it? Do you absorb it and bring to your art its abstract energy? Do you change it, modify it, add to it?

“In Search of Hidden Meaning” asks you to dig deep down into what you are writing or creating and show the world what you are discovering in it.
