My works are my instant reactions executed by my nib gliding across the paper tracing the overt representations of my personal reverie and nostalgic recollections. The journey of my art is demonstrated by the compositional order illustrating the meditative bonding between me and my grandmother, right from my early student days at the Delhi College of Art. This exploration has included various directions and possibilities – to admire and explore the female form located in my utmost vicinity, which determinably is woven around strong familial ties.
I seek to work across genres, firstly with drawing and then with graphic mediums like Lithograph, Etching, Aquatint. I am mostly interested in constructing these delineating works on paper. Be it water color or soft pastels, I seek to explore these various mediums.
‘Nani’, a title of one of my initial series was mostly drawn around my grandmother located in his native village in Kerala. Culling moments of mundane activity performed in domestic spaces like kitchen, courtyard, bedroom, and even exteriors, Nani sits and reclines like a demure goddess. Frail and sloppy in her disposition I endeavor to exhibit these functions with the emotional charge much in face of the viewer in an attempt to savor my taste for these precise details and the linear structure.
