THE MIND DELINEATED
Having done numerous acrylic and digital paintings, my emphasis lies on the idea and the concept driving my work and the use of mostly bright colours and bold strokes to bring it out. The ‘Texture of Life’ series engages with the dynamics of womanhood and ‘Antique’ presents a range of collectible items in a new light. But majorly my idea driven paintings are a part of the series ‘Mind’ about which I present a few details here.
The series ‘Mind’ with self-explanatory titles evokes Freud’s analogy of the mind as an iceberg which floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water. Primarily dealing with life’s vicissitudes and the confrontation of the mind with modern, urban chaos, the series depicts the different shades of life and its multifarious aspects. So, whereas ‘Let Me Sleep’ shows the need and lack of a tranquil mind, ‘Reflection’ and ‘Meditation’ represent the solution to survive the trials and tribulations of life which is further represented by ‘The Game of Life’. ‘Dream Fishing’ shows the incessant attempt to catch thoughts from a wide array available to the human mind. ‘Gyan’ engages with another vital aspect – Knowledge- and depicts its ability to stand the test of time while other aspects wither like the ones depicted as dead, brown leaves. Hence using surrealistic and semi-realistic modes the apparently motionless paintings depict the inaccessible internal workings and activity of the human mind.
