As an artist I am greatly inspired by the endless creative possibilities that come from combining the richness of Bhutanese visual heritage with the infinite range of art techniques including watercolours, acrylic, sketching and mixed media, and have also attempted many forms. I am currently excited by the challenging freedom of working in conceptual art to explore my personal expression and experience in Buddhist themes. My work frequently responds to and engages with traditional Bhutanese art and its religious themes. Much of my work attempts to re-imagine these Buddhist concepts, freeing them from their expected, familiar traditional contexts and allowing them to shift into new creative directions. A current preoccupation is how to artistically express and explore my own questions about the impermanent and illusionary nature of human life and existence. My journey as an artist has enjoyed the dual blessing of being born in a nation like Bhutan, which has a strong, vibrant and colorful tradition of art and being involved since childhood with VAST, where I have been constantly exposed to new artistic styles and traditions.
I see being part of the first wave of contemporary Bhutanese artist as an honor and I feel privileged to be among the first to re-imagine, re-shape particularly Bhutanese experiences, beliefs and landscapes without being overly influenced or limited by someone else’s interpretations. I hope every piece of work that I undertake has the potential for both myself and the viewer to interpret and represent our world with a fresh and untutored perspective. I know this is both an exciting opportunity and huge responsibility, both of which I embrace.
