New beginnings, a promise of a fresh start – an act of optimism, a perception of a different outcome…Being in conversation with my environment has been an obsession of sorts for many years, exploring inner and outer spaces is what happens in these works. “Waiting for the Sun”, “Miracles”, “Please Don’t Burst My Bubble” and “The Incidental Kim” explores preexisting spaces and circumstances that tell a story other than itself bearing within it the potential of a new outcome, new and unexpected. “Say Something”, the two Mickeys and “Corrupt” are a play on the obvious. The Subway stairs in NYC or the quintessential roadside news stand nestled within the shape of Mickey bears a dark playfulness, as also in the twisted Coca Cola letters resonating the outcome of dictatorship. Needless to say that this piece along with “The Incidental Kim” are playful allusions to North Korea. Bubbles are ephemeral, yet we continue to make them if only to be able to see the rainbow colors reflected on them momentarily similar to the pursuit of art today!
