b-1950 As I travel to different countries, I am drawn to highly textured structures -finding beauty in delipidated surfaces where marks, repairs, stains, and climatic changes have left their legacy. Certain experiences of the place form strong sensory memories. Tapping back into the memories leads to abstract shapes, textures, colours and marks in my works, bringing about the essence of the places visited. The artworks are used to explore the possibilities of recreating my personal responses to the elements using a variety of media in multiple layers. They are elemental, raw, earthy, and abstract.
