Artist Statement
It is common for painters to explore what it means to live a life on the water. From Inlay Lake to the rivers running through Rakhine State, to the famous Irrawaddy, Myanmar is a country that ebbs and flows with the tide.

Through her various series, Mor Mor explores not life on the water but water as life. It is, of course, a core element of human existence and a basic necessity essential for survival. By isolating individual water drops, Mor Mor emphasizes water’s dynamic form, enticing the viewer to see our most basic element in an entirely new perspective.
