This show provided a good opportunity to display my work in a different space in Bath and it was positive hearing the viewers response form looking at the artwork.

People perceived it in many different ways and it seemed to have provided a unique experience. It was nice to here people associate my work to their memories or their feelings. Topics ranged from traditional Japanese Painting, spiritual presence and spaces, clouds and industry. 

I realised from this that art has the potential to evoke people's memories and feelings in deep and meaningful ways. Everyone sees it in a way that is personal to them and it seems to make them feel happy as they can relate to it. I realised art has the power to engage and influence and perhaps bring positivity to the world around us in multiple ways. It goes beyond about just being a physical product as it awakens multiple mental and sensory experiences. 

Thank you for everyone who came to see the work, I really appreciate it.
