‚Personal/Universal’ contains works of contemporary ar- tists. Although, trained and associated with the traditional technique of miniature painting, it is amazing to see the point of departure in terms of form and exploration of

the technique presented in the works. The art practice is linked with artist’s own personal vocabulary, which does not necessarily come from their training in miniature. It stems from their life experiences, influences and inspira- tions from surrounding cultures, or social/political change.

The personal extends into universal just like a stitch of embroidery that manages to become real; a few piles of paper contain millions of words; the sound of making art speaks to both you and others. Yes, personal is universal.
