My practice is about my mind quest.
My ongoing work is about Mind as a subject matter.
I observe my daily life events and surroundings, reflecting upon my past experiences with all of my senses. I approach my history and present with an emotional and rational appreciation, with a splash of spontaneity.
Through investigating aesthetic, symbolic & metaphorical ways of presenting, I use various materials and methods of making to convey my intention.
I specialise with fine art print and use my understanding of science and Buddhist philosophy to inform my practice.
I'm interested in visible and invisible forces and their relationship with inner dynamics, especially agony and the joy of human life experiences. I am interested in how to improve the struggles of the human mind to enhance life with less pain based on compassion, Buddhist teaching, and brain plasticity.
