It's also due to the viral pandemic that the Wallace Collection has had to close and therefore the Friday late curated by Momtaz Begum Hossain and all the activities she had organised were now unfortunately not going ahead. This included the art trail of art by South Asian artists including myself.
Forgotten Masters Wallace Collection
Here is the finished piece I created especially for this exhibition.
It is called Do Not Assume and is based on the DNA molecule
DNA is a biological molecule that is the blueprint of all the genetic material that you inherited from your parents, it makes you who you are. Your DNA is unique to you and directs the way you look, with your natural body shape, hair and eye colour. You have inherited a lot of your characteristics but there is evidence that the information you have inherited is only half the story, of who you become, how you behave and think as a person because that is largely affected by what you’ve learnt, your environment, the people you mix with, particularly the thoughts you think.
My new artwork especially for this exhibition gets you to think about your DNA differently. My design is based on switching the actual chemical bases for empowering words. In an actual DNA molecule Adenine would bond with Thymine but in my DNA , the Adenine becomes “Attitude” and Thymine becomes “Thoughts” etc , the idea is the molecule DNA stands for “Do Not Assume” anything, you have the power to transform your life, with the right thinking and planning you can achieve your dreams and improve every part of your life.
