My Art in Words.

An expression of my Art in words seems ironic, since Art is my escape from the tyranny of words. I often find that when I try to convey feelings, thoughts, or views through speaking or writing their essence just seems to evaporate. Therefore, I draw and color to artistically vocalize my temperament; as words prove an insufficient means to do so!

The source of my work is inextricably related to my myriad interests and my experiences – my being. It is borne out of my travel & Art studies, my meanderings between various worlds & various cultures – the one I inhabit now, the Eastern one I grew up in (India)…
I find immense enjoyment and intellectual enrichment in seeing diverse places and meeting its many people; these human experiences influence my visual consciousness and I strive to honor these relationships through my Art.

Working pigments with fingers on paper is my preferred way of creating Artwork; I’m able to get even closer to my subjects that way. I primarily use pastels and Charcoal, sometimes with addition of ink washes, spices & coffee. I use color to add vigor and intensity, and make attempts to balance strong lines, which assert themselves freely and whimsically in my work, with the use of pigments.

I work devotedly to achieve the effect I’m after: temporal, fecund, and passionate! Since each artwork is a special journey, a pilgrimage, the end of the process suggests itself organically..
