Mella’s focus on cultural and racial diversity through clothing has created works that are bodily modifications of the social space. Inspired by a painting of Murni’s that she owns titled Aku Merindukan Sepasang Anak/I am longing for a couple of kids painted in 1997, Mella collaborated indirectly with Murni who have “lived the full and painting was a way to deal with life experiences… she shows that nothing is too absurd to be painted…”
