tender musk is a series of assemblages which he developed upon returning from an artist residency in Hubei, China. In this recent exploration, the artist looked closer into how colours, forms, textures, and function form meaning(s) and social hierarchies. Not to be mistaken as frivolous janitorial supplies, these objects and materials however carry metaphoric meanings that go deeper than the surface appearance of its original particular landscape. The intermingling of materials present new affinities and pairings that hint at another language, one premised on touch and texture. Through considerable selection, placement and manipulation of these otherwise perceived as foul objects as materials, the works highlight how lazy habits of visual perception conveniently reinforces colourism towards especially certain minority communities.
