Following the seminal exhibition, Silent Supper, Ay Tjoe Christine explored the juxtaposition between spiritual and physical fulfillment. Distinguished art historian Jim Supangkat, who was the curator of Silent Supper, once described her work as the "paradox between the loudness of the compositions and the stillness of the content". She discusses this further in Tiny Supper 02. Even the painting's medium, a combination of oil and pencil that are layered on top of one another, like scattered flower petals and filaments, provides tension between layers and lines, the transparent and the opaque, the tactile and the intangible. The figure in the painting appears like it's floating, yet its limbs are connected to a thread-like substance, as if illustrating the limitations of freedom within a finite shell. Both beautiful and haunting, Tiny Supper 02 demonstrates that there are struggles within the mind and the soul that cannot always be answered rationally or physically, for, to borrow the words of Blaise Pascal, "the heart has its reasons that reason does not know."
