"Bodh" means to observe and to be aware. My work revolves around this basic idea. By observing matter in its elemental form as independent and in relation to self, these compositions investigate the condition of "non-dual". Choice and combination of materials are integral to each depiction. Character of materials is investigated until an intuitive understanding is arrived that informs its role and place. Hence, an unhurried sense of time is an essential factor in rendering these. Travels exploring some of the oldest schools of art, archeological sites, and other indigenous techniques have been instrumental in making of these works. Process is the message and it carries a dimension of wonder and submission, use of ancient wisdom, creating a continuity of knowledge and pleasure drawn from age-old resources.
