About the Artist :
I can eternally play with light and light sources but therein lies the challenge for a post-object artist: How can one create something powerful enough to engage and move viewers without resorting to entertainment?
On my recent art residency scholarship in Berlin and extended travel through Europe and visits to most of the museums, as well as my thirst for a historical perspective,I was drawn back more to my core as an Indian.
Yantras and symbols which I have grown up with and which were embedded in my subconscious, started emerging in my work which manifested itself in a new body and I exhibited these, in two shows in Berlin.
I have been working on two different bodies of work since my return a year ago.
Chronicles of Bosphorous- which explores the unity in two old cultures and civilizations through sacred geometry.
Glow- An abstract body of works using gold foil in layers to create a sensation of time and space as it manifests in music.
