Artist Statement

Reading Oon Sim Sim’s writing struck me with a heavy feeling of sentimentality for an era I was not even born in. Their story reminded me and weaved in with the stories my parents would tell me about their lives in the 60s. There are different elements in the work that tie to significant memories from the writer, almost like memorabilia. The work hopes to evoke these different moments with a touch of whimsicality as that is what remembering is. We pine for the days gone and the people we spent our time with, and as whenever we remember it, it changes a little, making us fonder of it each time.
