I have completed my M.F.A in portraiture .During the college I
focus in human figure study in all
mediums ‘’A portrait painting depicts
the image of a particular person but ‘’Portraiture painting’’ is pictorial
representation of form . I have always
try to create the self portraiture ‘’.
In my recent work ‘The reminiscences’ I have created a collage, a 40 panel
work, inspired by nostalgia of my own childhood as well as the culture I grew
up in. Each painting in this collage encompasses a gradual change of emotions
and memories from childhood to manhood. My various experiences as the son of a
farmer - all that I saw and realized - are depicted in this collage as
forms. Some of the forms are of simple
toys I played with, some are tools I saw and used and some forms relate to my
life as an artist. The forms in my
paintings are childlike, something that almost every child would draw. I have balanced those forms with realistic
work creating a visual composition that is balanced.
The memories a child holds on to are the
building blocks and the very foundation of his nature as an adult.I braced
myself to be strong-minded enough tolay bare in the public domain ,various
parts of my childhood, including the pain experienced due to child labour..
