From the muddy depths the lotus rises up to shine as a thing of beauty. I see this growth reflected in today’s troubled times. We need to journey on a sustainably different path. I see a new world arising, and that it is magical.
My work is holistic and environmental: I distill black lotus ink donations to the temples. The brown washes I create derive from dried lotus pods. My crayon skies are created from natural beeswax formed from petal ash. A hint of orange within the sunrise comes from shattered colonial roof tiles I collected after a severe storm in Battambang, Cambodia. The 24 karat gold I purchase from the artisan gold leaf makers in Mandalay, Myanmar or Burma. The glimmer of pure gold leaf I apply to these works reaches through us to show us a new road.
The process of manually creating my colors takes time, but are produced with love and gratitude, and using classic time -worn techniques I have learnt through my myriad travels and life in SE Asia.
As I live in Cambodia, the national post office is not accepting international shipments at this time. Couriers such as Fed Ex, DHL and Kerry Express are alternative options, and will be quoted on request. Alternatively, the works will be sent as soon as the postal borders are open.
