My works are mainly derived from the notions about transcendence and transmigration, as in something always moving from one state to another, so it has been a quest to find a visual level of communication that would unite traces of our existence, I have become increasingly fascinated by how tenacious life is and yet how in a moment survival ceases. The fragility of our existence is what I am trying to express through my works, I try to examine the complicated and chaotic ways in which life contracts, expands, converges and divests in our personal journeys, I seek to release my emotions and give respect to a life that has been fully lived. The calm, serene landscapes interest’s me I feel it has this ability to shape us. It has the power to influence our behaviors, our emotions, and our memories. A place (the right place) can inspire awe. It can motivate its inhabitant to explore and get lost within it. It can also inspire a fear of the unknown and uncontrollable, reminding us that we are still at the mercy of the forces of nature. Animals have always been a predominant part of my work, Sometimes its just the mere form of them is holy in a way, like they have this incredible power about them. I am also interested in the qualities which each one of them possesses and how they co-relate with us humans. For instance, the elk (deer), deer is one such animal which, throughout history has been seen as a prey (victim) animal, and it always remains as the “hunted” so in some way I feel the very helplessness of a victim is what I am trying to explore through these works, the very image of them staring at us makes one to question his own sensibilities, while being confronted before the image.
