My work combines mediums, bridges global cultures and interlinks the traditional and the contemporary. By interpreting popular images into personal statements, I have paid homage to and also “quarreled with the Gods”. But it is not a revolt for a change. It is to heighten the tension between the dualities: the powerful and the weak, the controller and the controlled, the privileged and the deprived, the unique and the commonplace.

I lost vision in my right eye in an accident in which, ironically, one of my own paintings hit my eye. As a result, I see with one eye only without perception of depth and spatial distance. This condition made me invent a different way of “seeing” that has lack of spatial depth. Therefore, my work uses graphic mark making juxtaposed with fluidly painted surfaces and forms to create “a feeling of spatial depth” with help of contrasting opposites as a substitute that also helps heighten the tension of the opposites.
