In contemporary, developed societies, people typically start and end life within an impersonal hospital setting. Drawing from the experience of losing mother to cancer, the conceptual pieces by the artist contemplate the tension between the clinical and the human. By manipulating clinical imagery, materia medica and natural elements, the artist hopes to lead viewers to consider the role of human sentiment and dignity within the experience of modern medicine. “Peaks” (2015) refers to the connection people have with others and the emotional variations they encounter in relationships. It also alludes to electrocardiography of the human heart. The salt is a metaphor for humans as the ‘salt of the Earth’; this phrase was initially a biblical reference, but is now used as a common phrase refering to humanity in general.

MobArt started as a “mobile” gallery in 2009 curating art exhibitions in public spaces such as restaurants, cafes, hotels, with the aim of elevating people's interest and appreciation for art by making it an integral part of everyday life, which will in turn foster an environment that supports and nurtures creative talents.
After a break from exhibitions, our ambition to bring art into your space and promote art as a lifestyle is unchanged. We have since expanded our community to 100+ artists and repositioned ourselves as the bridge between creative talents and those who value and seek creativity, working collaboratively with private and corporate clients.
