My influences are Indian heritage, ritual, cultural traditions and the 'Journey'.
Art, for me, is not something to be searched for, rather something that can be found on one's
own doorstep. My work has spiritual rather than religious influence and recent themes include
the fallen angel, shame and our journey to absolution.
I am deeply process led in terms of my installation work and have made almost a meditation
from repetition and exploring human emotion.
We take for granted how Mary undertook the great responsibility of carrying Jesus into the
world. I wanted to explore not just this immense task, but how it must felt having to explain
this to all around her and what an impact it could have had.
Would she be hated? Would she not be believed? Would she been seen as an adulterous and
treacherous liar trying to lump another man’s child onto an innocent Joseph?
In this piece I am attempting to bridge the gap between the biblical time and the modern day,
and a representation of prayer.
