Artist's Statement :

My art practice emerges from and exists within the concept of contact force incorporated in the daily mundane activities. Physics is my way of seeing what I can’t see and challenging my perception of the world, pushing me to the places I would otherwise never enter. ‘I perceive through the lens of physics’.
Work questions our perception of looking at things in our immediate surroundings. I am interested in getting into the minds of viewers. “I want viewers to intake my work from their way of looking rather than my way of looking, although it is a reflection of my way of looking.”
It fascinates me that I live in a space next to diverse materials. When touched, the material starts to have its own life and language, which one cannot control. This pull propels me to explore the materiality of everyday industrialized objects and their relationship with human existence. The touch of the human body with the material world and the changes this contact brings around is what seeks my attention. I intend to import the essence of changes brought by human contact with day-to-day materials.
Every space, every activity, every change next to me seems to be engaged in some sort of cyclic process of repetition. I believe repetition has the power to trigger one’s memory and make noticeable what might otherwise get unnoticed. It plays a vital role in transforming daily interactions into an aesthetic experience and building visuals of my work. I converse through the frame of repetition.
