Travellers - 17(Cover Painting)

Min Wae Aung, “Travellers 17″, 2013

Min Wae Aung has used the classic motif of the traveller as a starting point got this new series of work. The powerful energy of people grouping together for a common cause, farming and land issues, family concerns, the issues of survival, are packed into the narrative of each painting.

There is a painting composed because each person has a little load, it is a random mix, artistically selected with an eye to the qualities and personality of the one person. There is another where everyone is a kind of farmer, another where each is carrying a kind of produce for the market. Each is a real person that Min Wae Aung has photographed un-posed, and some he has spoken with.
