With a strong belief that everything that is born, grows and withers away to be yet born again – incessant change from one to another proceeds in an evolutionary cycle – I chose not to be limited to a small corner space that defines who I am and what I must make. To quote Dalai Lama, "Within the seed of the cause of events is the seed for their cessation and disintegration”.
The ceramic sculptures I make are simplified in form and use the layering of glazes to create the surface that is an imagined space; through them I build landscape and terrain. I find my inspiration from the world viewed singularly through the lens of an inverted fluorescent microscope. Not far removed from my ceramic process of glazing with minerals and oxides, layered on the clay body, my oil paintings have the interplay of colors and the quality of depth that create an inner landscape without compromising with the content.
I continue to work with ceramic forms that reflect my own sensitivity and awareness of the material itself and its traditions. The pieces that best integrate the form and surface, the spontaneity and fluidity of the clay along with the object's use, are my personal triumphs.
I am excited each time I find a new direction to experiment. As the work progresses, I tend to become more concerned with the overall perspective, and my own personal challenge in trying to know who I am in the context of the world I create and the one I live in. Consequently, I pause to look at my own work more critically and objectively.
