varied hues of myths and events in our lives absorbed consciously
or unconsciously are subject matter of art. Growing up in India and Pakistan, amidst a sensorial cauldron of vivid hues one is overwhelmed by the colors of nature. Observering colors of sunset, rituals, crafts have always urged me to be celebrating a festival of colors on my canvas, where free use of colors help me to discover unusual surface techniques. Accompanied by simple objects from our everyday life, and set against a background of delicate textures there is a narrative that tantalizes the viewers imagination.
Emphasis is on the elusive quality of most basic element of art-line. Lines that meander, disappear, and emerge with great vitality. There are no preliminary sketches, or planning, only yielding to a deep force from within that takes me into a very meditative state, and a tranquility I have never experienced before. I simply wait for the unconscious mind to unlock its barriers and allow a glimpse into a realm never explored before.
