I believe in challenging the Status Quo using my Art!
I am a story teller. My works are a combination of form and narration. Inspiration for my sculptures/Installation stems from my long- standing curiosity of human behaviour, human interactions, observation of daily life and the funny ways of society.
The forms I create are often familiar yet obscure. I further treat each of my works with bright colours and graphics. Thus, my pieces are a harmonious mix between 2D and 3D to hold observers’ attention with an element of fun along with a thought provoking dialectic as eventually an element of satire and phantasmagoria settles in which expresses the personal and universal dialogue.
Over a period of time I have chosen to use familiar forms significant in past and still hold memories in the present. I combine it conceptually with current socio- political issues. The process of creation involves self-reflection and intensive research into specific subjects in order to come to a purgative cathexis and understanding of the society’s reaction towards the subject raised.
I often use ceramic as a medium because it allows me to sculpt, draw and paint all in one medium. The idea behind drawing and painting on ceramic object is to show the notion that things are not always what they initially seem to be and an object may hold a deeper connotation.
