    What does the murder in Pasir Salak, Perak, Malaysia on the 2nd November 1875 and the slaying in Jalan Kayu on 1st June 1969 have to do with an alienated post-modern man? It restates that impotency can cast a long shadow over time. Beyond its depiction, this is the story of Siva through the looking glass, weaved over time with the threads of humanity. Timeless is a visceral experience which disrobes the human condition over three epochs drawing upon searing images inspired by Francis Bacon’s triptych series. It is an examination of the question “Time changes but do people change?” If people do change, why does history repeat itself?
