In Nature-Temporary Installations

In Nature: Site Specific Installations 

Jyoti’s pigment drawings, as documented in photographs, reflect spontaneous moments in nature. Meditative compositions emerge through the process of highlighting elements in the landscape – a tree snag, rock, or mysterious nook – that captures the artist’s imagination.

These temporary installations connect to Jyoti’s cultural roots in Nepal, where animistic rituals still define and celebrate the powerful forces of nature. Using the same pigments available in the marketplace and at sacred temples in the Kathmandu Valley, Jyoti celebrates the beauty of seemingly ordinary landscape features. These intimate installations ultimately heighten awareness of our sense of place and the potential for a spiritual connection to the natural world.
