artist statement

A work of art is the physical manifestation of an artist’s life experiences, memories - both good and bad, introspection and self-discoveries. The ability to communicate his/her thoughts and emotions is the greatest trait that an artist possesses. Over the years my narrative and style has changed a lot. As a student I preferred to experiment in terms of subject, medium and material in order to develop and find a language of my own. After college till 2011, my work oriented more towards documentation of my day to day experiences and recollection of my memories from childhood. The varied twists and turns in my life have definitely had a major impact on my work. I feel now more than ever, specially after my brief sabbatical from art that my thought process and narrative attributes have evolved and matured drastically.
