This set of work engages thinking and questioning about the sense of demarcating of nature, territory, land identity and the impossibility of doing so. This set of works uses painting and its material complexes to looks at border-marking as a visual sense of endless pursues for the imaginaries, spatial creation and spatial meaning-making in human experiences. Also, it hopes to subtly play out the negotiations between the nature of earth spaces and the enforcements of human intervention.
