I have aptly titled my series of work “Manifestations of a Black and White mind”, it is to signify how I see the depths of the surroundings around me and try to transform them into glorified and detailed images of a black and white micro and large universe, i.e., the importance that each texture plays in our life . This is an ever developing and expanding subject as there is a vast understanding of elements one can learn through perception and observation. It is still a work in progress, and I know it is a never ending exploration of my understanding of our surrounding dimensions.
