A brief account of my work

My present body of work attempts to present a visual world, where an individual is constantly confronted and haunted with images that interweave multiple contexts in our culture and society. Part of my works tries to explore the traditional and the indigenous references thus stressing particularly on the making and interpreting of images according to my sensibilities. Part of my work also explore and at the same time tries to bring forth, the visuals, through popular modern imageries, that has become omnipresent practically in every cities and town. Mechanical reproduction and repetition together with mass production have been important tools for hypnotising mind, behaviour of an individual and society at large. I have been investigating this, together with the artistic practise in my works where the multiple repetitions are being done by hand. Here the manual labour contradicts the techno savvy digital environment that is somehow taking over the urban scenario, but at the same time the motifs emphasises the relevance of both the past and present coexisting cultural significance .

I have taken references from glamour magazines, art history; posters, tablecloth prints, roadmaps, religious calendars public vehicles, that are edible to the eye. I exist at a time of change and transformation, of acceptance and shift, of chaos and insecurity, of growing cultural inclusion and new aesthetics. My works try to search my role essentialised by my choosing of objects and visual, there altered situation and place, based on my reaction, sensitivity and feeling. From here I take a step forward and try to amalgamate and fuse, the intuitive and the intended ,as it allows me the space to work explicitly with colour ,line and form in an abstract as well as referential manner. It therefore enables me to retain the two dimensional reality of the painted surface. Animals bear special significance as they engage the mind, both as a reminder of popular cultural and religious motif. And at the same time attempts to justify their role and space in my paintings.
