FRAGMENTS OF AN INTERNAL LANDSCAPE: STUDIES AND MAKINGS presents an ongoing collection of studies in the form of drawings and small-scale sculptures which are manifestations of insights and emotions from moments in time. Delivered as an evolving installation, the exhibition explores the subject of mental health as an ever-changing landscape of the internal self. The works are personal documentations of an ongoing ritual practice contemplating the darkness and light: often incoherent sentiments of the world within.
