“Nature Patterns”

My work is influenced by my native culture, where I come from Sri Lanka. Inspired by the particular landscape, I have become interested in the patterns created by nature, for example, the bark of a tree, or the twist and turn from branches or patterns from sea waves, ripples on a beach. The life cycle we all go through as human, animals and plants. These living things create patterns that interact with each other to keep the balance of the world. In some cases human try to control this cycle by cutting trees in the rainforest. This disrupts the beauty of our natural world. I like to bring the importance of the nature to us as living things.
