  • Biography
My work originates from my religious beliefs. My sculptures represent consciousness and concentration, core aspects of meditative practices; forming the body in a state of balance through focusing on what is happening in the present time, which is the path to the Cessation of Suffering. Found objects, art, and non-art materials are employed to create tension and maintain balance through the assemblage and installation of my art.

I see the process of making my work as the practice of meditation. It requires the same patience and dedication through balancing small, fragile pieces to form large-scale sculptures. The structural form in my work reflects the creation of identity; being mindful, conscious and aware, growing up, and regarding oneself. The instability of my sculptures is the truth of life: arising, sustaining and falling.

I do not feel restricted to any particular form. I feel this way of working allows my work to evolve with me, free from restriction. I believe that every theory and artifact is formed and developed by humans, for humans. What defines us as humans is our self-awareness, spiritual curiosity, and philosophical musings, that is why this concept is important to me.

I feel that this concept will give voice to ideas in which I try to unite my culture to contemporary art. I believe that this project can reach a large and diverse audience, and will challenge people’s notions of difference and equality.
