Art, Life & Other Things: Such as dreams are made on, 2015

From the artist

This work reconceptualises Eastern art history, my cross-cultural art experience and sums up my search for a different kind of aesthetics. This restrained minimalist idea is my continuing push for simplicity in my art, life and other things as we negotiate a world of constant distractions.
What if we just stop for a moment?
/ And lose the ground under our feet / To be captured in the moment
/ What dreams may come true?
