The "Here, but not here” exhibit is an emotional journey that explores common themes associated with immigration, such as displacement, disorientation and isolation. Through the use of watercolor paint, images are given faint forms that are partially detected by the eye, but not. The absence of certain facial & bodily details correlates with the exhibit's theme, of being present, but not completely present. The visual narrative expresses a personal journey of overcoming emotional seclusion and redefining one's identity in a foreign land.
