Artist Statement

My work speaks the language through lines with expression, 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 ,mix media ,glass sculptures 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 express  moods  in the joining lines .

As lines are the foundation of every art school and bringing line into motion ,helps me to present my expressions and bring results. Possibly, it takes hours to days and weeks 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.Now the work on glass with facets motivating my style to move forward.

These works represents 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 to come to unconscious level and putting me at that point where everything is taking into lines to present  inner feelings. These lines are motivatingme ,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 many kind of art of Rajasthan (state of India) and my belongings to Himalayas keeps me spiritual and simple. Keeping focus on the recent work inspiration also comes from childhood visual memory  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.


   As far as artists motivation is concern I would say Indian artists such as S.H Raza,F.N Souza and M.F Hussain and  international artists Picasso, Dubuffet, Pollock, and the abstract contemporary Danish artists (worked and did residencies for 5 years )  .Among all, Picasso and his techniques encourage 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, Richard Tuttle and more are inspiring me .

Learning  from  Himalayan masters and continuing meditation from last 14 years is bringing changes in me . It results , loving all creatures and believing in  mother earth with no boundaries of countries .Basically ,this feeling  is driving  me  to come close to others through easiest way as I do through depicting line's lauguage.I would say considering this nature ,promoting my visual and inner inspiration , getting stored consciously and unconsciously in my mind  are breathing and cosmos .When concentration on breathing takes place it occupies space with  aura  and that space is generally projected as thick line in different time containting shapes. More, seeing the beauty of cosmos ncluding position of sun and stars. inspires as geometry in cosmos.


Four  years 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 internationally renowned museums with world wide exhibitions ,it will help my work to breviewed by internationally renowned art professionals .


I got identification of my work by presenting different shapes indicates different moments and the work olines in it indicates the situation of my mind at that particular moment. The  shapes contain lines which are presented in dimension with flow of feelings  and showing the joined lines with  focus of expression . Somewhere, the lines are put with complete figurative expressions as per required subjects as in two paintings "opportunity" and "planning ". I believe these  points make my work unique and different . Moreover the projection of lines with different  texture ,color ,different material  and putting it on different  base , reflect 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,make the work little tougher for me. Moreover ,This foundation of art (line) forcing my innerself  continuously to elaborate it more and more expressive and broad way.
