"It's two years since I was at Preetnagar in body, so my mind has had time to unpack the items from my experience destined to stay with me. There are many. I loved the building with its seemingly infinite number of doors and windows and its subtle nods at Art deco. I loved taking my food on a porch overlooking the fields of Punjab. I loved the warm welcome of our hosts and family, hospitality and talent with a true heart. I love the fact that I didn't think I had done much work while there, but that it has led to new ways of thinking about my practice. And I love the fact that there is an aching in me to go back."
