TRUTH IS A PATHLESS LAND
j. krishnamurti

// as an artist and maker : : my work is the reflection of fortunate encounters, meaningful exchange with people, situations, material and objects at some point in time and space.
touched by beauty and driven by curiosity, my practice is a form of existence, a vector towards some sort of realization, a way of sharing - and a source of happiness
