The inspiration for "Drift" comes from a series of works in recent years entitled "Adrift" that reflect on human existence within the spatial context of loosely painted landscapes. These artworks aim to capture elements of the seen and unseen and the impact between human and surroundings. Drift refers to “a continuous slow movement from one place to another…” It is the potential of the future ahead.
