191Untitled 21.5×25cm By Hanolol Baron


“The background behind my creation of collages is my interest in contemporary social issues and the uncertainty of existence.

I take great care in gathering the materials I use for box construction and fabric collages. I use old fabrics and boxes because new materials lack the aged feel and feel dry and cold.

I create works for my own satisfaction.

It was a surprise and a coincidence for me that my work was exhibited and received by people. That's because I don't create my work with that in mind from the beginning. ”
