Rooted in the natural world, Forever Clouds is a visually captivating site-specific installation that teases our perception of reality. Including semi-abstract paintings, minimalistic sculptures, and a full height installation with symbolic lightning, this exhibition engages a broad generational audience, inviting one’s unique interpretation of the timeless and unbounded formations of clouds. Conveying feelings of wonderment and playfulness, Forever Clouds instigates many possible layers of meaning: from self-reflection to a broader collective cognition of the life changing events we’re facing today, this exhibition also wishes to contemplate the beauty of our natural environment, while aspiring to preserve it and respect it.
