‘‘I create a random pulling in of transparent hues of water colour on wet ground, indeed it is a technique that has been learnt but I use it to create a challenge for myself. The hand crafted bamboo quill works it’s way in and around this mass of mess to weave a story I am familiar with but only get to know its sense much later.
The exhibition show cases select works to bringing about a conversation with visitors about why is visual art a specialised form of art and the need to look at works of art and find how they look back and show themselves.’’
