Don't Worry Be Happy

Info

As we grow we encounter life, death and some of us may believe immorality too. So what does death mean? Everyone tries to avoid death in their life. But eventually, death is something that everyone has to go through whether healthy or with illness. But what if staying positive can change one’s life as a cancer patient to the better?

“Don't Worry, Be Happy” is a memorial series dedicated to my late grandmother who passed on from stage 4 Liver Cancer. Visually, it interprets cancer cells growing in a human’s body: abstract, organic and repetitive. These forms are achieved through experimentation with different executions of glazes. Bright colours are thrown to give contradicting element to the project theme as well as to evoke positive emotions from the audience. This artwork seeks to bring awareness to a taboo topic of a chronic illness. Attempting to show the audience that positivity makes us more resilient and hopeful —with ah message that advocates joy during difficult times.
