What is culture? Is it a way of life? Is it general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a specific time? It is music, art, theatre, literature? Or does culture evolve from organised religion or conflict? As a kid, I was fascinated by the behaviour of people and somewhat amused by it all. There appeared to be a general rule to function as a unit, a form of collective understanding of fair and favourable exchange. Whatever it was, all I could do was participate in the show and occasionally question the experience. I really tried to believe in what was often presented to me for consumption, but something inside did not want it,
Culture is a series of artworks created to record specific moments of thought and experience. Each piece is a visual influenced by my understanding of the outer world along with narratives that dissect both my outer and inner perception.

Spirituality is a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all.

Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue while others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art or people. For me, spirituality is a conversation with self that leads to awareness of everything.
Spiritual is a series of artworks inspired by moments in my life where only I existed. As a child, I was exposed to an incredible amount of spiritual experiences through Hinduism and Christianity. Both entities guided me to seek beyond men, gods and self.

A concept is a general idea about a thing or group of things, derived from specific instances or occurrences. It often applies to a theoretical idea conceived in mind. The definition of conceptual is something having to do with an abstract or original thought or philosophical or imaginary ideas. It's a grey area for sure. Nobody knows how to share an idea that is made up of other ideas correctly. New forms of language or processes are created to force the brain somehow to make connections and communicate with the body of emotions or if you like, the sensibility. Art, music, literature can be created unconsciously to help us assemble a collection of unrelated elements into a conscious experience. We need to make sense of concepts so we can move on to genetic things.
Conceptual is a series of abstract artworks that convey random, obscure thoughts and ideas that have often hijacked my logical mind. Nothing needs to make any sense, and no thing has any influence over some thing.
