Set of works are attempts of a critical engagement with the place and time we live-in; These are evolving alternative approaches in dealing with questions that artist ask himself about changing facets of human relations and sensibilities, displacement, struggle for identity in urban reality/context. It’s an experimentation using subversive strategies with the language of painting; humour and wit are part of these stances. The images are caught between complex situations and dilemmas of reality. The figuration portrays an interpretation of everyday reality and nurtures the fragile feelings of human emotions to construct meaningful imagery from the lived reality. Along with the seen, the artist has tried to mingle/mix/combine intangible aspects of his surroundings. He uses metaphors, variations in scale and repetition as the devices to achieve the desired results.
