ARTIST STATEMENT

My practice is to extract the soul of worldwide famous paintings. I consciously and deliberately play with their color palate, compositional element, placement of objects specifically their narratives and recreate them in entirely different mediums and techniques. My work is a comment on museum quality art, which we access in different derived forms like prints of prints of prints and soft-copies, sometimes in a brilliant resolution and sometimes worst, what left is so ambiguous and mysterious. I challenge the authenticity of inspiration of how work transforms as it moves from canvas of the Master to the canvas of an artist, where the process of artistry results in so many diverse dimensions. Not everyone can access the original masterpiece to experience its originality. The fact is that none of us is experiencing the museum quality art. Almost all of us are inspired by second hand version of original paintings. I also challenge myself to break conditioned narrative of famous images by visually amalgamating famous narrative paintings. I enjoy the process of de-contextualizing images. In some paintings I am capturing the delicacy of different printed versions of painting. I normally use watercolors, oils, graphite and acrylics.
