“My work focuses on the complexities and multiple dimensions of relationships and language. In my work, I use visual expression as a means to explore the layered communications we sift through each day. By distilling and re-presenting the compelling dynamics of both verbal and nonverbal exchange within interpersonal interactions, I seek to actively investigate and ultimately challenge the way we perceive our everyday relationships.
My work is comprised of encaustic and mixed media on various surfaces and in installation. I employ color and form as they are able to elicit the same emotive response experienced in exchanges with others. I thoughtfully select her palette, forms and found objects to extract a familiar, yet almost unrecognizable feeling — providing a visual ideation of the words, implications and expectations we exchange with one another. Using the layers of wax or mixed media to provide a sense of detachment from the true emotion on display, I strive to provide a conscious embodiment of or glimpse into things otherwise left unsaid”. - Cheryl Gail Toh
