My works have evolved as expressions of a nostalgia for the absent and a silent grief for the memories of the lost. From the earlier days of my practice, I have been attracted to the changing spaces around me and the withering away of the beautiful handiworks of our culture under the nonchalant march of time. My practice engaged into depictions of cerebral spaces where the narratives of isolation and loss were built up with the experiential realities of my surrounding spaces. Pondering upon the apathetic numbness that shrouds the human existence of this time and age my works embody the remorse that I feel from the loss of humanity and life in the whirlwind of civilization and development.
Note on the work exhibited
This set of work revolves around the architectural space of my college. I had tried to encapsulate the abandonment and isolation of an institutional periphery. It is an ode to the space where we have been taught to be free thinkers. This is where we had gained our spirit of resistance and learned to celebrate the coexistence of differences. I intend to portray the setting of a standstill, devoid of the human presence, making the place dysfunctional.
