Artist notes for Postcards:  

  • Kevin Hlaing/Myanmar – Ngamoeyeik Chaung is a classic story in Myanmar. It’s a strange romance, that has a tragic yet hopeful ending that stuck with me.
  • Camelia Pham/ Vietnam  This story is part of a myth about a princess betraying her kingdom for her husband but eventually ends up being tricked by him into giving away the kingdom’s secret to a rival kingdom.
  • Emily/Laos  This is the story of Maek Kala, the sea goddess. Growing up, I heard this story many times from my family. My inspiration came from the memory of saying “The goddess is being chased again today” during stormy days.
  • Mvndeep/Malaysia  I remember being told the tale of ‘Puteri Gunung Ledang’ as a child. It was one of the first folk stories I ever heard, and I’d like to think her story helped play a small part in the kind of art I create today and my love for mythology.
  • Lala Berekai/ Timor Lorosae  The King of Lequeçan’s tale talks about the importance of a Timorese woman’s word and her position in society. Coming from a family with powerful and hard-working women in my life, this folklore with female empowerment was the one that resonated with me the most.
  • Andrew/Singapore  Long Ya Men or Dragon’s Teeth Gate was a seminal symbol of this pirate haven before the British tore it down. The much-reduced remains are one of the few physical pieces of structural evidence of this particularly unknown and enigmatic period of Singapore’s history. As such, the artist’s intention was to commemorate it as though it was a widely beloved tourist spot.
  • Pavii/Thailand  Nangkwak นางกวัก is the spirit of luck and wealth. The myth is that she is the first Thai woman to be skilled in weaving. Initially considered a ghost, she is now considered a tutelary spirit Goddess. You can also see shrines built with her.
  • Penkuro/Cambodia  The folklore Prah Neang Konghing – ព្រះនាងគង្ហីង (Princess Konghing) has a Buddhist storyline of being Mother Earth who can create oceans. There’s also a Cambodian version of her story that is connected to a row of mountains in northwest Cambodia. I love that folktales continue to change and evolve as told by people who remember them.
