I am so honoured and excited to be a part of the second Brilliant & Black Sotheby’s exhibition, this time hosted in my hometown, LONDON it took place between 22 September - 2 October 2022 - and now the pieces are exclusively available on the Sotheby’s website.
The theme for the show was the AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT, centered around the pursuit of happiness, a quest that has paved the way for liberty, philosophical thinkers, and creatives.
The pieces I've crafted for this exhibition are my manifestation of my mother's experience coming to England in 1962. They allow me to express the thoughts and feelings, as I imagine them to be, of a generation coming to a new country and a new climate, to new traditions and new ways of seeing and being seen. These designs have allowed me to add light to what was quite a trying and dark time for those, like my mother, who arrived in London between 1948 and 1970. All pieces are exclusive to Sotheby's.
