Statement: I feel that the most interesting aspect of weaving ties in the sculptural approach. Expressing the organic forms in nature. I am interested in expressing the connotations of primitive dwellings and at the skeletal strata forms of landscape. In this particular piece I tried to explore the possibilities of twin forms. I chose white, grey and metal because of sculptural associations
