should purely reflect the artist who has done it’, that is what
I strongly believe upon and led me towards my thought process of working
while painting. At present they are mere representations, inspired from
the traditional objects of my culture; I use these objects symbolically
to express the thoughts and feelings which I undergo in my day to day
life. I rather like to work with acrylics, layer upon layer which binds
my work altogether giving it a strong base along with the transparent
images visible over and over, which gives a depth to my thought process,
evoking a sense of subtlety and mere conversation between itself.
Even though my paintings are self expressions, I paint so that people
may observe, wait and watch my work of art and experience this sense of
subtlety, peace and relax their mind. There is nothing very harsh in my
work, everything is mild, and even if something contradicts it is very
I am very
much influenced by my culture, though my painting is not traditional,
day to day traditional objects which are along with me or some objects
whose appearance I find interesting I study those objects, work with its
various forms, which sometimes form a part to express my thought in painting
(it can be any incidences in day to day life which holds me) I try getting
them on to the canvas, then become free and solely play with the elements
while painting and thus enjoy the process.
