wandering, roaming, contemplating

my rising falling expanding contracting mindscape,

exploring the landscape to escape

and to find solace

and understanding

 

Copper comes from deep within the earth. Copper fascinates me because of its ability to change its colours according to the heat and oxidation it exposed to. The environment surrounding it greatly affects its appearance. Through experimentations with applying organic matters and various degrees of heat, I could achieve various nuances of colours and textures. The oxidation process would eventually happen, but in my case, I intervene with the process - managing to somewhat direct the result to a limited degree. In this way, I collaborate with nature in creating my pieces. It’s a metaphor for life itself in which changes and transformations would eventually occurred. We can either be passive and let them shape us, or actively take part in shaping ourselves.
