As per vijay
Let me spell out what I have been attempting through painting for over the past 35 years. My preoccupation with paintings is to make an attempt to relate my subjective experience in relation to my surroundings and situations. A serious attempt to understand the feeling of the void within me set me thinking about existence in general. A dematerialised human figure (form) became the protagonist in the quest of understanding the metaphysical reality around me. The individual figure in my work never looks at the landscape, but with simple gestures tries to express the states of mind. A mood of non-involvement is deliberately created so as to offer the viewer the critical distance to watch the mental landscapes contained within, in order to understand the very center of being.
I would like to pursue my thoughts and expressions in the form of painting. I want to break the barriers defined by geography, language and age. I want to present to this new world the beauty of art and the strength of the human mind. At this juncture, an international exhibition will be of immense help to expand the horizons of visual art, to redefine the meaning of art as seen by the young generation and to continue using traditional media of painting.
