RE-ESTABLISH // Duet for ONE

shift from self-alienation to self-liberation through meditative practice.

This project investigates how understanding the philosophy of emptiness influences the way of being in my life. True emptiness is not a nihilistic nothingness that diminishes the dream and its forms, but a fruitful emptiness that makes the richness and fullness of life possible. It may lead to an understanding that without emptiness there can be no fullness. 

I work with drawing, repetitive mark-making and a process-based exploration of materials. I use my work on meditative practice to demonstrate spiritual experience through the repetitive process of filling and emptying, unfurling the potential of the surface by experimenting with a texture through deconstruction techniques. This is a way of embracing emptiness as a significant stage of/in the circle of life as well as questioning the purpose of existence.
