To me, art is the experience of being in the present moment, a moment in which many people often find themselves lost. Such moments take me beyond my studio, whether it's 200 or 2000 miles away from home. This distance brings me closer to myself and my art, transporting me beyond the two-dimensional world of paper and media, where my creative mind soars high and touches on unexplored ideas. My artworks primarily focus on the cultural misunderstandings that often surface in society. They mirror the conscious and subconscious thought processes within a civilized mind, articulated through the language of metaphors, innuendos, parables, or proverbs. The lifestyle and travel experiences I've gained during my time in art residencies across diverse countries, along with the cultural immersion within different languages and traditions, have enriched my comprehension of these societal misunderstandings. These varied experiences have helped me to live a fuller life and to create more profound art.
