Artist Statement

My practice is interactive emotion with spiritual level of subconscious to unconscious. In the level of subconscious energy comes with the body language. And continuously keep going on it unconscious level might be come. Constantly and spontaneous with bold lines, strokes and using objects, experience and present times come together. The darkness of my painting is the burning of power of meditation. Without burning no one can go to the level of “The No”. And “The No” is the level of unconscious.
