The key themes in Marika’s work are emotions, appreciation of ourselves, acceptance and personal growth. In this forthcoming show she explores the idea of appreciation encouraging us to think on it’s meaning, what we appreciate and whether we feel appreciated. Her aim is to create works that are simultaneously calming and empowering. An impression of flowing water is present in many of her paintings.
Corn Shuk Mei Ho – Night Swim
The concept for this work emerged late one evening whilst swimming far offshore of Lantau Island, Hong Kong, when Corn observed the many-layered darkness of the sky and the sea unspoiled by artificial lights. The characters in the paintings are depicted as though they are nocturnal creatures … their emotions mirrored by the reflections cast on the surface of the waters, drawing a line of correlation between water, as a physical element, and as a symbol for the depths of the human psyche.
