ARTIST’S STATEMENT

  • My works speak of the ideas which I am carrying with me since I started painting. Each of my works develops gradually. I get attached emotionally with the surface and also, I am very sensitive about the results of any stroke I apply on it. I feel that my gradual process of developing a form makes it realistic and more meaningful for myself.
  • I am interested in a certain range of symbols & images. I am not rigid about the final output of my compositions and I let it grow as my relation with the forms develop.
  • My love and curiosity for symbols was further given a boost with my fascination for the pictorial language of Indus valley script. The mystery behind the script made me curious to work with it.
  • That marked a new beginning of my journey through more forms and colours. And I am still traveling through the experience of exploring it more and more.
