In this series, Iwan conveys and gives form to the complex and weighted sense of being, while providing a lens into the exploration of new experiences. This exhibition shows how the artist’s artwork acts as a springboard into new experiences as well as a bridge for introspective reflection.

Viewers will also experience the vibrance and uniqueness in each of Iwan’s artwork in this exhibition. The artist admits that he puts his personal attachments into each of his paintings, expressing various emotions and experiences. Iwan incorporates idioms, symbols and metaphors into his paintings — important devices for him to channel the uncanny around the characters in his works.
