Artist Statement

   I find it rather difficult to discuss my own work. As for myself it is always hard to decide how much to reveal and how much to hide. As a person I am quite secretive and almost in all my work there are elements which are so private that I don’t like them to be shared publicly. 

My works have always been autobiographical. Me and my works, together we grow up in the course of life as a process. I can even say that I maintain two kinds of diaries – one literal, and the other visual.

 In my works I mix up everything. Whatever I go through, I look at or I see around – is reflected there. My work is one continuous process in which images evolve, get lost and resurface. For me, it is a sort of treasure hunt that I play with myself. Challenges – there, in that arena, are made and solved by me only.

Small works crafted in an intimate way is what I feel most comfortable with. And I like to explore them sitting in my private, silent zone where hardly anyone is welcome.

Primarily, story-telling obsessed me in whichever format. Narratives are something I connect very easily with. To play with words, phrases, images, words represented through images, and images with dual meaning excite me endlessly. It is, however, quite amazing to discover how things look different as angles of vision change.

May be, art and life, both, are about growing up, by expanding vision and collecting experiences. Maybe, this is what is called mysticism of life. This taught me multi-dimensional things and simple facts like relationships change as friends go, distant people come close, roads never end when things don’t go right, and so on. Life, no matter how simple, never stops to amaze me, and this time it told me, the journey never ends.

Paper is my pet medium, and I do a combination of painting and collage. 

 Language changes according to mind sets. At times, it becomes more allegorical, rich and literal, and sometimes again, nakedly autobiographical. 
 Adding up innumerable small details, mixing up multiple layers of narrations were my favourite types of games.
