Due to the corona virus I found myself living in Thailand. Not only I was immersed in a new culture but the whole world around me was changing rapidly. My mind invaded by waves alternating from angst to euphoria , hope to despair.
On the positive side the environment, always in the forefront of my thoughts, was getting a reprieve. Blue skies in Bangkok, a glimpse of the impossible possible.
One the darker side, chaos and death on every corners,
“In exile” feature all new pieces created here in Thailand. They are a reflection of some of my state of mind. There is a lots of tension within them, a fight to find harmony. They are mirroring my views of the outside world.
Lets hope that we can reboot it and use this experience to start in a new direction, in harmony with nature using globalization as a tool toward peace.
