“Reunion: Desiring Social Connections” is the creation of Frankie Lim Rong Yao in 2015. A part of Frankie’s earlier creative works, this piece is Frankie’s way of revisiting his first school reunion with his friends. Here, Frankie challenges the myth that individuals on the spectrum are not interested or incapable of social connections. Contrary to these beliefs, individuals on the spectrum do desire social connection, interactions and relationships. It is a lack of skill that is often misconstrued by the general public as a lack of desire. This piece communicates this desire for interpersonal relationships, envisioned through the harmonious interactions between the animals. His intuitive and strategic use of lines against negative space also brightens this piece, creating a harmonious balance and a general feeling of positivity.
This early piece is selected as part of his limited edition print collection, as the desire for social connection has become a central theme and a pertinent experience following the pandemic restrictions.
