Concept behind the
Experimentation keeps new
ideas rising to the surface.
This aptly justifies my
nature because I believe in experimenting and have kept on doing it since the
beginning. Be it oil, acrylic, or any other medium I do not restrict myself. I
love to explore.
While I was working in oil,
I had this flare of doing realistic and photorealistic works and also had a
distinct design quality coming up. I used to play with the surface trying to
bring something new, this is very evident in the ship series, which I did that
had a lot of variation. Then, I shifted to drawings on paper, there I mingled
with the forms yet there was a stage where I felt an urge to attempt something
new, bring some change, try my hands on different methods, come out of my own
comfort zone. Due to this urge I keep seeking objects of influence in and
around my own surrounding.
This series of work that
I have done recently has textures and hard surfaces along with rough edges this
is because may be I was too bored of doing the same things in symmetry, tearing
out the edges randomly and burning them gave a rustic feeling thereby breaking
the monotony in my work, which I loved. It went very well, the textures created
in my subject is the same, even so my approach towards it changed as soon as
the surface changed and I loved the entire play that takes place over the
course of time starting from the rough edges and later on the textured surface.
The unpredictable nature
of my work created and is creating a space for the subject that allows the
creation of even more experimental works. Moving forward my childhood habit of
collecting all kinds of waste things has now transformed into a subject itself.
My curiosity drove me towards collecting waste found objects that I saw and I
felt had the capacity to create and narrate a story. There by my effort began
to give an aesthetic identity to such found objects. There are many such
objects that I collect and have used in my work. Like the foil wrappers, sunmica
waste cuts, tuffen glass, parts of broken toys, wires, sand paper, brick
powder, waste ply cuts, medical strips, used masking tapes and currently I have
explored matchbox as an object.
Matchbox for me is not
just an object but I look at it as an object that creates energy that has a
meaning, which may differ from person to person. It has a story of how it
became my subject. Being an artist I work late night and my habit of smoking
became instrumental. One night while I was working till late I took a break to
have a cigarette realizing that I did not have a matchbox. At an odd midnight hour,
I went searching for it and coming back, I realized the need of a small object
like a matchbox and how satisfying it was after having found it. That moment
this subject and series with a matchbox began. Relating, correlating, and
creating an artwork that revolves around various subjects that some way link
with the object. Few have stories and few create an aesthetic language using a
matchbox. It has layer that is in and out and can say and narrate what I want
and also give a dimension to it. With this one object I have used few more
while creating the artwork. Like one work titled “ The Nawab of Hyderabad” I
have used few golden mojari (shoes) inside the matchbox, there was this nawab
who gave huge amount of gold to the city and who was very fond of smoking. At
some places I have associated my self also. I have titled one work as, “Mien
Azad Hun” because the date of the show is the birth anniversary of Bhagat
Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru. I have portrayed and
highlighted myself on the matchbox and inside I have shown few soldiers and the
rope. Every matchbox narrates either a story or an event, for me, I look at
this object that has created and energy to work by becoming a found object and
a subject itself.
