C.v, and statement

"Artist statement"

     This particular body of work is a continuation of my previous series but this particular body of work explains further             about a persons willingness to identifying with one's true self and the happenings in doing so.

my new work carries the richly symbolic “circle” as a focal element. i use circles in my work to inspire the halo of miniature paintings its symbol of power and importance to a specific person like a king or a person of significance, be it a king's portrait ,shown on a throne or an important character in a narrative etc. This use of circle is not limited to miniature paintings it has been widely used in different art forms of other cultures in the history. My point of using it in my work was to show a symbol known for its meanings of significance,power or sacredness for an ordinary person.

Using it as a hallow for ordinary people explains the importance of what his mind thinks,every thought, every action,every interest of his is important and sometimes a person has to shun what he does and thinks because society force their ideas on him , how they judge him and each of his movement which lets him act against his wishes.

My works are simpler in nature and explain the ideas of giving importance to your own thoughts and embracing one's self .The circle represents a lot of things in my work I use it as hallow to glorify the importance of what I think, and what I feel like doing. I highlight the importance of one's self to himself in a way embracing what I am. The other meaning is of the self imposed restriction on oneself also inflicted restriction by society one is living in. The figurative elements such as feet are the ways how one still manages to cross the boundary created by oneself and others and then the circle also explains constraint dwelling.

I try to remain on the traditional and mythical side in my work thus giving somewhat surreal feel to my work and I believe the elements used,the colour palette, the atmosphere, the use of shapes and even landscapes represent my ideas of escape and resignation at the same time.
