Disorderly Order

When order meets disorder, it often creates tension.

Every society, like it or not, has some form of rules, guidelines, laws or values to function effectively.

This artwork is a combination of abstract (disorder) and grids/pattern (order). It seeks to reveal that, when enacted in harmony, order meeting disorder can help us focus on the beautiful and the unusual. 

The local community is likely to see growth and real change in the near future. A community that may need to rethink its values and rules to adapt to these changes.
