2019 (How are we?)

A series of painted works investigating living and life in 2019.

The Piece ‘Theo’s plastic Beach’ won the overall prize. (please contact for inquiries).

This painting portrays the joy of a nameless figure in the year 2064 as she reads news in Mandarin and English that the world has been ‘fixed’. It captures a fictional moment in time, encouraging the viewer to engage with the active and imaginative task of envisioning a brighter future. Without the ability to imagine a better future, how can we hope to create one?
