Her exhibit with us is titled Encoded Liberty made out of recycled and treated Polymer in 2021. Speaking about the work, she says, “I believe extraordinary patience is necessary to work towards peace; the source of that patience is inner serenity. Such liberty enables one to see clearly that war and suffering are outer reflections of the mind’s poison. The essential difference between encoded liberty and freedom is that one has discipline and control over the shades of black & red. Their delicacy and texture, create an impression of nostalgia. It is not an independent emotion, it is a state represented by social emotion, it is constant and permanent at every level.”
