About Work-- SURVI 'WALL'
This body of work is about "Contemporary life", everyday life situations, urban chaos, the political power play and various methods of "control, the individual is put to test and also becomes a unit to counter the situation.
The figuration here is about "yoga postures" that indicate "catharsis and healing" the "shadow" becomes the reflection of the "individual" as a part of the system. whereas the props like "chair, barb wire and fences" convey power and control.
The Consumer culture and the over populating city, the ever increasing number of vehicles, bad roads and insufficient civic facilities become the subject of enquiry and scrutiny.
The "wall" in the paintings has its own story to tell, as some times the message and graffiti it carries is a clear indication of our times, the bills, film posters, political slogans and symbols, advertisements, religious fundamentalism and fanaticism all convey certain unrest.
The language is derived from a consistent practice and conceptual observation of contemporary "tools of evolution"-the Digital age. Most of the works carry figuration that shows "fresco" like fading and "decay" which is deliberate from conceptual point of view.
My faith about work and ART is always about the process of improvisation.
