About the Artist :

Defining Space
I find space all around me with its own emptiness and also occupied with interplaying forms. The space with its negative and positive existence interrogates and converse with me. This conversation takes evolution on my canvas and starts defining its own existence.
I am a colorist and color always inspires and ignites me to paint. In my initial time period, I was much influence by the light falls out of the window in the night. To gaze at that interplay of shadow and light was my biggest exploration. It appears with various tones and colors in my work.
During the process, I moved to architectures their formal arrangement with interacting space. It was very fascinating to watch at that. Especially the under construction buildings was my real inspiration rather a subject for my work. The forms, tonal variations with interplay of light and the interacting sky started appearing on my canvas.
I see the objects in terms of its shadow rather than light, it gives finer dark tones, which I loved to express in my works.
Recently I felt I am moving towards emptiness a void space. The space with only tonal gradation and colors, with shadow as interacting forms. This gives me a sense of spiritual silence, where I felt myself void or filled with floating energy, which liberates me from my physical existence.
I like to explore things without words or forms, where the sensation or feeling becomes more valued, which offers me another dimension to my understanding self, that’s the reason I am more into abstraction.
