Series: Multitudes & Mindscapes

2011 - 2016

The works are about the sheer enjoyment of paint and the process in which it can be channelised

to create harmonies of colour, rhythm and expression. 

The intention was to explore and express the idea of repetition, beauty, automatism and spontaneity. The objective is to create a sense of pattern in the non-pattern and movement in the works, through exploring the physical surface, improvising the image and exploring the pictorial possibilities.

I use repetition as a mode to freeze or condense time and space and also as a means to re-live the same moment.

To me, this “re-living” via repetitions, creates an “emotional time warp” that attempts to transfers emotional past and psychological needs into the present..

The series started in 2011 are scribbles and squiggles that attempt to map thought process and are left abstract, open to interpretation.

The works focus on exploring the process of creating art, rather than the final product itself.

To me, art is expressive only when there is complete absorption in the subject and creates an experience of the union of the past and the present.

In a subjective way repetition in that sense is an expression that clarifies turbulent emotions.

My works are about playing with layers in a painting. While exploring the “Layering Process” I have also experimented with works in a book format, in which layers are depicted by the “Pages”. While painting, within these layers, I come across many different stages where the multitude of visuals appear and diminish subsequently. The works are devoid of any preconceived notion or deliberation.

While painting, I sometimes de-structure the image into several layers to see the possibilities in juxtapositions and separations. .

To me, it is very necessary that the visual should be unified.

Harmony, unity and rhythm in an image is something that I strive for...

Sometimes predictable but more often unknown; My works are intuitive.

The course of painting itself gives birth to forms and thereafter dictating dimensional spaces, bringing the surface alive with movement and life. I aim at creating visuals resonating with energy; evolve as a personal mapping of my working process.

I enjoy and rediscover myself while painting.
