As I reflected on my life, in which adversities and hardships exist simultaneously, the presence of adversity was like a crack. The sun exposes the tear stains and the shadows are clearly visible; the dark shadows are my other self. I have been trying to explore balance, I have learnt to mend the tear stains in me, to keep trying, to keep challenging.

I try to explore the power of female, and different traditions of femininity in cultures, and how ancient cultures viewed female authority. Exploring memory of eternity and change, and feeling the power of the immensity of time and environment.
