Cheng_Jacky_The Best Kept Secret-4

The Best Kept Secret

Year 2020 has been incredibly challenging for everyone. Art making instinctively became our tool in documenting this significant journey we've all had thus far. Friends all over the world sending messages of love, hope and encouragement. Some sadly left us too early and others practice precautionary steps to continue the fight. Whilst all these were the utmost importance in everyone's lives, I forget momentarily that I live in one of the best place in the world - the stories, the untouched, pristine landscape of the Kimberley in Northwest of Western Australia. Blessed.

Here's an ode to our Best Kept Secret. Winner of Sculpture category at the Shinju Art Awards 2020 Jubilee celebration. 

Statement of work:

As a visitor, you come for the poetry. Then, you stay because of the stories.
