My work as an artist is a reflection of my belief in Buddhism, particularly Anatta meditation, the practice of no self. It transcends boundaries, inviting introspection and contemplation of the human condition. From immersive installations to sculptures, paintings, and video art, each medium provides a gateway to different dimensions of perception. No-Self meditation guides my creative process, fostering introspection and inspiring authentic expression. Through my work, I visually manifest the interconnectedness and impermanence of existence, blurring the boundaries between the physical and metaphysical. I aim to create a sanctuary for viewers, prompting them to question perceptions, fostering empathy, and deepening our understanding of interconnectedness. Art has the power to unite and celebrate our shared human experience.
