Just Let Me Sleep is a self-portrait created at a time when the artist's life was plagued by exhaustion and a loss of direction. The gestured nature of the strokes used to compose the face aims to bring out the chaos of the mind.
With no preconceived image of his painting, Mr Loh adopted an experimental approach, painting with creative impulse. The technique used was developed on its own during the process. The free exploration was a form of liberation for the artist.
