About the work
This piece came instinctively as an imagined scenario that is as vividly imprinted in my mind as it is physically felt. A certain timelessness of this environment engulfs one's sense of a beginning and an end, almost as if one suddenly finds herself surrounded by a vaporous blanket of fog that quietly seeped in, thickens, encapsulates and wraps one within.
Then the gently burning glows glisten all around, within reach yet not to be captured.
