ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
We welcome back Jeewan Suwal to the hotel this month, as our Artist in Residence.
My works holds my affinity to the place where I am in the moment. My foremost inspiration is my own intuition. However, my paintings explore geographical, psychological, emotional and aesthetical aspects of place. Through my painting, I try to express my personal perception, emotion and my sense of place. I practice the concept of psychogeography to trace my memories of places that helps to combine my different memories from different places that is not tied to just one location but makes overall sense of place. through visual representation, I intersect mental, emotional and geographical factors that shape our experience and understanding of place. Exploration through being lost in place, curiosity from wandering and appreciating the awareness that comes from drifting through a place or situation is reflected in my current series of painting. And I usually use acrylic paint as a medium to express my thought.
In my present exhibition, I have a collection of paintings from different places. These paintings reflect my journey from one place to other and also it will reveal realistic to abstraction. In this collection, I have some paintings that reflect Nepal and India. However, most paintings are from my Australian experience.
Jeewan Suwal’s new exhibition Drift will also be featured in the Packing Room gallery from 30 September to 13 November, 2022.
