The Artwork is a call to Awareness

It is titled Karuna after the bird call in Aldous Huxley's book 'The Island, which focuses on a community having figured out the possibility to weed out competition and superiority complexes, through exertion in the physical realm and attentiveness to the sense perception.

This installation through its visceral textures, the energy behind the made marks and in the dimensionally deepened canvas through sown pockets inlaid with burlap, the room it becomes through which one moves, heightens the awareness of ones own presence in it.

And residually outside of it.
