The artwork, “A Ragged Cup, a Twisted Mop,” captures a moment of self-reflection. The muse is featured in a double portrait of sitting figures. The figure in the foreground is given focused eyes and a bright yellow top to suggest courage. But just like the one at the back, her hands stay planted on ground supporting her body in a relaxed posture. I usually call out my alter-ego to lift me up whenever I am feeling low. But this time, ‘my alter-ego’ was also feeling blue.
