Artist’s Statement


On my brothers suggestion I took upon the challenge of exhibiting our artwork coupled together. I did a lot of labor though many a sleepless night on my each piece, presenting life and nature in the most appealing shapes and colours like those in kaleidoscope. Life never stops presenting to us multifarious sights, scenes and objects that attract one’s attention to look at them and render them into shapes and colours. Every moment arrests one’s attention towards the objects of nature at once bizarre and mysterious. In short it is the beauty in Nature that makes us cry; for, that beauty is short lived. It’s the painter’s to arrest that beauty eternally. As a certain English poet has said “heard melodies and sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.” A Painter never finishes his job.

My subject matter form exhibition to exhibition may vary, but the technique and principles that I follow are of the Dutch Masters like Rembrandt and Rubens. To me things, which are considered commonplace or dull to the public, seem to carry special significance for me. On my part, with the profound and intelligent play of light and shade, simple yet beautiful compositions worked with bold but sensitive brush strockes always rendered great results.
