While feelings are an important part of everyday life, many of us ignore them and push them to the back of our minds. Shirly Koh believes that the practice of making time to listen and feel, while being gentle and thoughtful to our feelings is an important process that shapes us to become kinder and more emphatic.

Feelings Are Alright is an ongoing project that stems from the artist’s response to contributions from a previous show Speaking to You. Through dots, lines, colours and shapes, the artist gives form to her interpretation of their feelings by translating their emotions into abstract embroidery.
