My work speaks the language through line, it looks like going deep into depth in search of peace by keeping the simplicity and profound expression . It generally attracts viewers to compare it with their everyday reality showing truth including feeling and vision .Moreover, drawing ,paintings and installations represents the confessional art with minimum lines of different colors and different texture on different shapes in the form of minimal art . The meditative mind enhances lines to present the flow in feelings and to show facial moods in the joining lines as per the subject.
As lines are the foundation of every art school and to do practice ,practice and practice on lines helps me to bring them in refined form. Possibly, it takes hours to days in studio to bring out the best results on any pre decided base . I am using 2D base and 3D space , to get more projection on work.
The recent paintings are the result of my situation whatever I am facing now and the feelings ,thoughts arising in me .In fact ,during the period of working ,my mind follows these questions such as how the thoughts are working ? How the situation is getting biased? How the conflicts and collisions are happening between the thoughts? How the conscious mind is bringing the state of meditation and leaving me at that point where everything is taking one format of lines to present inner feelings. These lines are motivating me ,to bring them alive . Slowly slowly while working , I am getting in love with these lines and this experience is giving me relief in mind.
I follow the path of inspiration from childhood to adult for growth and direction , as since childhood I got fascinated by the culture ,colorful cloths ,folk art ,tribal art and all kind of arts of Rajasthan (state of India) and my belongings to Himalayas keeps me spiritual and simple. Keeping focus on the recent work ,it gets conscious influence from tribal art of India where rural ladies draw figures and different features by using triangles,lines and circles on the walls ,floor and courtyards.
Being an artist,I got motivated by Indian artists S.H Raza,F.N Souza and M.F Hussain with international artists Picasso, Dubuffet, Pollock, and the abstract contemporary Danish artists (worked and did residencies for 5 years ) .Among all, Picasso and his techniques encourages me the most , from expressive signature of mine to rhythmic flow in figures,lines and shapes .Not limited to earlier artists ,incitement is necessary for progress, as this era's contemporary artists such as Anish Kapoor, Frank Stella, Richard Serra, Sol Lewitt, Donald Judd, Brice Marden , Robert Ryman ,Robert Morris and more are inspiring me .
Learning from Himalayan masters and doing meditation from last 12 years is bringing changes in me and now the feeling has come which doesn’t believe in countries ,infact this perception of similarity with every living creatures around the world is getting prominent in me .In short , I believe in only mother earth ,no boundaries of countries .Basically ,this feeling is driving me to come close to others through easiest way as depicting line.
One year back ,I was doing abstract figurative with expressionism ,but it was based on other subjects rather than myself .The quest of bringing self feelings on toile and to convey with others, brought the stage of minimal art ,moreover, this art perfectly matches my spiritual and meditative nature . That became the reason of bringing lines into form and presenting self through my own nature .
Considering future prospects, this work should move on progressively with catching up dimensions and different materials ,so that I could get the opportunity to present work in Moma,Gugenheim ,Centre d’Pompiduo(Paris) ,National modern art museum (India) and Whitney museum ,so that it can be reviewed by internationally renowned art professionals .
I got identity of my work by presenting lines in dimension with flow of feelings , showing the joined lines with focus on expression , putting the lines with complete figurative expressions as per required subjects on different shapes ,which makes it different .Moreover the projection of lines with different texture ,color ,different material and putting it on different base reflects the vivid culture of my birth and living place.
As an artist representing lines with minimum usage ,more dimension and to bring out more feelings,makes the work little tougher for me.This foundation of art (line) forcing me continuously to elaborate more and more expressive and broad way.
