“Nature has a million answers. If one submits oneself to the form and the raw energy of the tree, one can see great poetry and lyricism in its intertwining branches and roots. Exciting, sensuous and intoxicating. Even when the tree can no longer bear fruits and leaves, or is cut, bleeds, idles in some corner, to be used or burnt down as wood, it affords an excellent laboratory to the mind. The creative process takes over thereafter, but it is only an ode to nature’s beauty.” – Excerpt, Artist’s Statement: Art for Earth series; 1996 -1997.
