Artist Statement

Fostered through a deep-rooted fascination with fictional characters, Mak infuses her photographic work with poetic references to icons from classic literature, folklore and mythology. By staging scenarios around illustrious story lines and characters, Mak aims to visually depict familiar figures and re-interpret the narrative. Known for its soft focus and minimized light values, her work disrupts the boundary between painting and photography.
