“Mom’s Kitchen”, for all his life Nay Zin Oo has found refuge in the warmth of his mother’s kitchen. His memory of this place is vivid and brings a smile on his face. Being far from this kitchen and his mother he brings the place back to life in the canvas.
The small cabinet contrast stark with the grey wall. The red pots and the blue containers add colour, yet the whole painting is about what is missing. For Nay Zin Oo it is his mother, the smell of food, the noise of cooking, for his mother it is Nay Zin Oo.
