Statement

Artist statement

Before having completed my MFA degree course in painting from College of Art, New Delhi in 2008, I had learned multimedia skills and had worked with private production houses that deal in new media technologies.

Aside from the technical proficiency this experience equipped me with, I saw myself at close quarters with a particular kind of aesthetic sensibility that the corporate sector privileges, one that can best be described as slick and glossy images which employ the rhetoric of desire and consumption.

The world today, over-abundant with such images even in the most conflict-stricken regions, produces a further layering of images which operate by technologies of surveillance, be it the google-maps, simulation devices, CCTV cameras, luggage/body scanning machines, etc.

It is within this milieu that I situate my practice as an artist, working synchronously with moving images in the digital media and static materiality of images in paintings. Whereas on the one hand, I employ similar rhetorical motifs as those in advertizing, on the other hand I bypass the information grid of surveillance in which certain images originally operate in order to bring out the poetics of life-experiences, disturbances, humor and fears.

 

I am currently based and working in New Delhi.
