I currently practice with metal and rust and like to try different processes to manipulate the material. At the moment, my work focuses on childhood trauma and its various effects on adults, often questioning at what stage do we consider an event to be a trauma, especially when we are young. I also incorporate nature into my work because i think nature has a healing quality to any kind of trauma. My other works include casts of different hand gestures as hands have the power to nurture as well as destroy something.

Intimate gathering
Humans are complex beings and human relation of any kind is complex in itself. The more we get to know other people intimately, the more flaws we see in them.

just playing with sugar cubes.... although they are not placed on a mirror, the reflection is coming through the plastic on a canvas... I forgot to rotate the picture but realised that it actually looks pretty cool the way it is.

Used two different materials that have completely different characteristics from each other-empty tea bags which are fragile and canvas frame which are solid. I wanted the light to come through the tea bags to highlight its texture and delicacy. I think this photo and it's colours are quite warm...

Back to square one......
I loved the poem 'The Mark you left' so much which was a response to my painting, that I HAD to make something that visually reciprocated the feelings I had when I was reading the poem. P.S. I know it's not one of my best drawings but it's just my way of showing how much I liked the poem :P

Along the Way
Formation of my personality through the knowledge in the books I have read. I believe reading brings stability and peace of mind as well.
