(Image: Asmita Rajiv, We The Puppets-2, 2014, Acrylic on Canvas, 24 x 30 inches; © Asmita Rajiv) Asmita Rajiv (b. 1973, India) My paintings depict the modern day lives of common men and women filled with dreams, aspirations, blunders, triumphs, disappointments, joys, regrets, sorrow and gratitude. These are the times of a 100 metre sprint. We sprint to a finish line, only to find that it is the beginning of a new start line. We race wearing our myopic lens through which we choose to... [more]

Instead, his painting is based on a dialectic principle that facilitates association with the world of things.
