“The idea of constantly making something out of something or something out of nothing is where I begin. For me everything begins with looking and waiting for the meaning to emerge, meanings that would talk about ‘something’ but not about anything particular. It’s like something prior to words, prior to meanings and connections. These are the ideas that were formed when, as an art student, I encountered this question of what to paint? I remember I wanted to give words to the experience of looking at the vast Arabian Sea or gazing out of the window at the empty sky. The mosaic flooring at my home had a healing property for me. I endlessly looked at it as one looks at the sky aimlessly. These were the experiences that I wanted to talk about."
