Paper, Ink 
In isolation at an ashram in the wilderness, primal cosmic forms that previously appeared in the artist’s work take on new meaning as they arise from a silent meditative space in a Hindu goddess temple. The same simple form is repeated hundreds of times in a variety of sizes in various types of media, each image unique in spite of being the exact same form. The artist is seized with a sublime compulsion to fill sketchbooks with this repeated form until the aniconic vision exhausted itself.
ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ।
मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Oṁ asato mā sadgamaya
tamasomā jyotir gamaya
mrityormāamritam gamaya
Oṁ śhānti śhānti śhāntiḥ
Lead me from ignorance to truth,
Lead me from darkness to light,
Lead me from death to immortality.
Peace, peace, peace.

-Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
