An Act Of Poiesis is an expression made to provide a glimpse of understanding into a complex form of human condition. It aims to explore the nature of traumatic experience and its ability in affecting an individual’s perception of our sensible world. The process of attending to suffering and letting it find its form could potentially reveal a deeper truth of existence. In the context of a personal experience of tragedy, this project is an attempt to restore psychological sense of order and do justice to the nature of a chaotic being. By withdrawing from the brute reality of the world and exist in a therapeutic space in painting, a significance of the situation that previously lay hidden and unformed is then revealed.
