“The world we live in is full of incredible truths and myths. The themes and narratives of my creations come from the facts and philosophies of life. They have a relation with the spirits of Indian heritage, art, culture and socio-political issues . It is an anecdotic series each one epitomizing its own tale. All the compositions have an indeterminate and anonymous destination to conquer, every tale touches its goal but ends up with a question mark for you to ponder over the image it has placed before you. The contents are not stationary; not at rest, instead are suspended in a state of reallocation; trying to speak out something, prompting you to peep inside the windows kept deliberately open. It is an invitation to participate in the ongoing triumph and be a part of the happenings inside.
Truth is a mobile army of metaphors, metonyms and anthropomorphisms - a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed & embellished poetically & rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical & obligatory to us.
I present an art which has bred inside me for long but just given been birth to.”
