Artist Statement

“I wanted to address the theme of metamorphosis both literally and metaphorically. Regarding the literal approach: the figures crouching to pray become one with the landscape to imply unity with nature. The metaphorical reading is conveyed in the way that the mountain range evokes the vast scope of the figures’ prayers (and the mountains echo their shape and colour). Finally I hope the black background beyond the cropped tableau of sky and landscape implies the infinite beyond appearances.”
