During my participation at the 2004 Russalka International Arts Festival in Bulgaria, I ventured away from my usual technique of producing traditional RASA works. The result, although remaining true to my style and form, was a the commencement of a body of works where I altered the found objects as minimally a possible. Hence I call this series RASA: minimals. The first complete set of works was then chosen by the jury of the 2005 TransATLantic exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia. The subsequent works were also accepted to the “Scavenger” exhibition at the Gloria Kennedy Gallery in New York City. Additionally, one of the RASA:minimals won the 2nd Place jurors award in the 2005 International Assemblage Artist Exhibition in Berlin, Germany.
