The series ''Golden Scars" came as inspiration from Kintsukuroi, Japanese art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. Sometimes life flows seamlessly from one perfect moment to the next, but often times we face struggles, insecurities and setbacks that leave us broken. And we wonder what will become of the pieces. The art of repair something and in the process making it more beautiful tells us that it is fine to have flaws. This aspect involves the urge to express the profound esteem felt for rejected objects.
