  exhibited sculptures

  colossal manifestation of

                     Quotes
   “One’s mind and the
    earth are in a
    constant state of
    erosion, mental rivers
    wear abstract banks,
    brain waves
    undermine cliffs of
    thought, ideas
    decompose into
    stones of unknowing.”
