  • Snakes & Ladders In this artwork, I was inspired by a game, which I used to play in my childhood. During the art residency in Wongol, I made this piece with natural material.

Statement:
Nature is a pure place for my artistic inspiration. It is also the place for finding myself.

This is for the human who finds meaning in nature, who comes from nature, and who will return to it again.

All challenges of human life, all concerns and plights of modern life, can be forgotten in nature for a quiet moment.

Traveling, exploring nature, moving beyond the stressful city life, human and natural, are some of the themes that I seek to explore in my work.

Performance, fiber installation, site specific projects, film and photography are the varied ways I use to express this deep searching
