Introduction to my works

The entwined self of mine in harmonious communication with the nature of my natal province is a fountainhead of my work. The colossal yet minute beauty of natural surroundings; flora, fauna, birds, blossoms, water and the essential human figures cumulatively contributes to the making of the general tapestry of my paintings. Fragmented representations of my feelings of this ever widening nature and human scape finds shape in the limited physicalilty of my canvas. Colours, forms and nuances of nature form the core of my aesthetic response. To me, nature is a supreme creator, contributing myriad forms and always in a dynamism that churns out newer marvels. This happens to be a primary force shaping my style through years. While deeply engaged with the content, I have been experimenting quite often as to the forms and techniques that would reflect my content best. Constantly, I am, in many ways, discovering and rediscovering ways to negotiate thoughts of these lived real being transformed into a sort of semi-abstract aesthetics in my works. Beauty that transcends the use-value of reality, is a staple treasure trove which I am always restless to experiment with and express as a standing philosophy of my corpus of work done and yet to come.

THOUGHT PROCESS

An intense attraction for the diverse and colorful nature having various tinges of light and shade is the driving force behind my creative ideas .The color and form and the subtle nuances of nature are the core and theme of my painting .My own feelings of joy and sadness get dissolved in pastoral nature and give birth to fresh forms .To me the nature is the supreme artist creating myriad forms and breaking them to create multitude of newer forms.
