Revelation

Nathan Khaw | 4B 2020 | Watercolour on Paper

Inspired by theme and idea “All that you cannot see” Appreciate what is around us. This could range from violence, feelings, emotions, love, pain, beauty around us etc., there is a lot we do not see completely. In order to achieve this, I tried putting in as many objects and content into the paintings. Objects used were also taken from things around me/ things that I like from my memories, a revelation of myself. Through the chaotic composition, viewers will not be able comprehend everything completly, there will be stuff they will and will not see. “Revelation” is inspired by divination and the “you see what you want to see” idea, for this painting to be a crystal ball for the viewers to interpret the meaning themselves.
