Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The urgency of political reform is very much apparent in Myanmar and we are reminded that political authoritarianism is still very much a stigma in the region. In the midst of social upheaval, Burmese artist Wah Nu offers an avenue of release and focusing on one’s inner mind through her paintings. Her Cloud series, in a way, represents the social consciousness of the nation, where the act of painting becomes a way of relaxation and escape from the drudgery of the current situation. Her clouds float in a single sea of colour with no distractions in the background, invoking a sense of transcendence beyond the material realm.
