About the artists
I use colours, shapes, patterns, textures, movement, shades and flow to capture the feelings and emotions that arise when one sees an object/ scene/ phenomena. My artworks are the expressions which are devoid of any direct physical depiction.
"For me, painting is only a medium to explore and experience the mysteries of nature. My works are based on the fact that nature and our body are made up of five components (panchtatwa): earth, sun, water, air and sky, each representing a color. The use of the five primary colors- black, white, yellow, red and blue gives birth to the vision of nature. I paint from a state of stillness, looking beyond the obvious, more as an onlooker experiencing the act of creation, the dictates and energy for which come from a higher source"
My thread on canvas works is natural, simple and deep. I strive to make them seem completely without contrivance, mere figments of mind, stripped to the essence and willed into visibility. A sense of Economy of the composition also conveys a remarkable orchestration of space light and texture which marries beauty with delicate lucidity. An authentic elemental and meaningful simplicity that is often hard to find in contemporary art.
