Artist's Statement

Harmony with blue vasesMyths and events in our life form the perfect subject matter for art. The subconscious mind is a treasure house storing an entire vocabulary of our visual and other sensory experiences. The process of creativity provides stimulation for the subconscious to emerge, unfolding the treasures that are a combination of simple and complex forms.

I know of the excitement that grips me when I work with the sights and sounds of nature and the ecstasy in expression achieving intensified brilliance. The tempest of colors thrill me.

Amidst a brilliance of colors, I reduce forms to their utmost simplicity and then embellish them with vibrant colors and energize them further with implied textures enjoying their subtle nuances.

I like to use lines that are elusive, lines that meander, disappear and reappear tantalizing the viewers imagination.

My present work is a tribute to the achievements of a humble village potter. Feminine form and Pottery that is either functional or meant for some decorative purpose dominate the composition. Their simple forms stand amidst a brilliance of colors derived from nature, village craft, and village festivals in order to provide a glamorous setting.

Thus my journey into a world of chromozone begins. These chromatic encounters are preoccupation with surface intrigues thrills me. Now I can withdraw and meditate in this realm of colors before me.

I celebrate a festival of colors, and as long as I am working with colors I celebrate life.
