Drawings and Sculptures
(PUK-MAI-TRI)

The Thai word "Puk- Mai-Tri" came to my mind after the September 11th in New York City. The term means tying or bonding a relationship between people, communities or countries. The tying of a knot is a metaphor for unity and striving for peace. In this exhibition I include knot drawings and portrait studies of different races for a sculpture "Knotting Peace". "Knotting Peace" is composed of three life-size nude females of different races who are struggling to tie a huge thick but soft knot. Their struggle symbolizes the difficulty in creating peace among cultures.
