Sunny J participates in GLO'ART Residency in Belgium

Updated: Feb 5, 2019




Sunny J is invited to participate in the GLO'ART international residency program in Lanaken, Belgium, for 7 weeks in June - August 2018.


Situated at the border of Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, GLO'ART center has an impressive collection of artworks created on site by emerging and mid-career artists around the globe. The display is innovative as well: in addition to multiple spacious indoor galleries, many artworks are shown in the extensive plein-air gallery and gardens.


With an opportunity to concentrate on one large-size painting, Sunny J completed The Dollhouse, a 2-meter tall painting using the ancient technique of oil-based tempera. Inspired by George Orwell's 1984 and Haruki Murakami's 1Q94, this painting reflects on the inter-influence of the "Big Brother" and the "Little People" as manipulating identities of the current society.
