Life Flows Like This
I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have met Sri V Satheesan, it is from him that I learnt
the nitty–gritty of sculpture making.
For inspiration I do not have to look very far. This land which is beautiful and harsh, strange
and contradictory, where ancient practices and modern thought co exist, where the garish
and the discreet, religious passion and visual splendor, tranquility and tolerance exist side
by side provides enough visuals to inspire an artist like me. I have taken my ideas from
cinemas, news-papers, photographs and people I come across everyday. My works till now
have been very direct and objective. They are intentionally ordinary.
I convey no message through my work. They are not ‘personal’. I offer no philosophy for life
via my works. I try to present whatever interests me, moves or touches me. I like to leave a
space for the viewer to fill in wherever possible. Creating each work has given me great joy
and after each piece is done I feel great elation and feel more alive. I hope I have succeeded
in passing on a little of that to my viewers.
