Gunungan, a celestial mountain, stands in for the universe’s “creating breath.” My quest for mental and emotional purity inspired me to start working on the Gunungan collection of paintings (2004-present).

These pictures depict the limitless potential for creation and the idea of the created as a seed of infinity. A never-ending, relentless alternation of creation and destruction is clearly depicted in the paintings as the constant rolling of the cosmos’s creative nerve.

The depth of color, the golden pigment, the detail, and the precision of the drawings strongly emphasize the range of high frequencies of spirituality. Pure color, exact sketching, and meditative perfection dominate the spirit of the creation of each particular painting.
