Point of Convergence Series

                      These pen & ink drawings on paper are part of an ongoing series that delve into the artist's continuous exploration of the intricate

      relationship between nature and multiplicity. The interplay of myriad dots and lines within the pen & ink drawings on paper mirrors the complexities                                               found in the natural world. The work emerges from the dynamic tension between introduced and native species,

                                                           prompting contemplation on themes of identity, collective consciousness, and belonging.

           The central void space between the various flora species invites reflection, and intents to serve as an allegory of  understanding and growth where              transformation occurs. The work offers a nuanced celebration of diversity, and serves as a poignant analogy for the fusion of diverse cultures,                                                                                                  and the unity found within our shared similarities and unique differences.

                         The carefully selected colour palette serves as a poignant commentary on global warming and its profound impact on the planet's flora. 

                            Through this artistic lens, the Point of Convergence Series invites viewers to reflect on our collective responsibility                                                                                                                    in safeguarding our environment and fostering a more sustainable future.
