I have been concentrating in my art practice, exploring form and formlessness... stone, seed, leaf, stem, animate and inanimate, stillness and movement, core, atom, nucleus, universe, birth, decay, the in-between space... form my visual imagery.

Minimal, primarily monochromatic, these are meditations on self and the environment I live in, from a feminine space looking at the landscape, defining and re-defining it, I enjoy the creative space and the process, of creating, images surfacing and resurfacing, with seeds of new meanings...

I work mostly in series, exploring the various dimensions and possibilities, creating a body of work with a single idea, pondering over, playing with it, going again and again and working with it and it is this repetition, this stretching, creating combinations, animated moving dimensions, process with no end and open possibilities...

Linear in nature, in my drawing practice and my conceptual works, I have also experimented with photography, videos, installations and collaborations. It is the idea that give shape to the material and the process.
