Artist Statement

ABOUT MY WORK

From my childhood, I and our family live in a rent house, even in which had a single room and we are six family members, parents and my four brothers. But those times I have no obligation to feel that circumstances, because I had my own restriction and donít feel how long space I need. However, I left it midway when I realized that I wanted to be an artist. Once upon a time I thought I would be a 'Revolutionary'. But I am found myself helpless. My middle-class identity taught me escapism. This was a saddening prospect. As a painter I thought I would give vent to my sadness and depict my state of mind. I am still trying to fathom as how this could happen.
But now when I recall my past and recall those days I feel how many problems we had. And how could my parents face it every moment. What ever, now I have my own language to express myself. The underlying sadness of the funny feelings is now discernible to me. I believe in my sensibilities. I know where I stand as an artist and as an individual. My works manifest my own time and space. It's simply not possible to be apolitical. One has to have a standpoint, and that should reflect in one's work. In that sense, I am not an escapist. I agree that as a human being, I am not infallible. But I paint what I feel.
Nowadays we need to speed any more, need everything which I desire. But we also know the reality that, we have own limitations, limited space after all. How long the voluptuous world could balance this progress. We forget one thing that, crisis of living land. Presently we have no way to fulfill this situation without compromising our self. So we can only adjust. On the other hand in so many troubles the world to keep up its existence, its sense of beauty, pleasure and happiness. They always to try to manage with present situation. But how long ?
Every body wants to continue their search for space, in different way with different meanings like as vacancy, chair, position, land, establishment etc. New time carry with new challenge for everyone. I think, we have to think about this matter because we are civilized.
We do not want to understand or misunderstand the truth. Thatís why society being change in every moments, changing our life style, our living policy, our thinking etc. According me we are not expanding, expanding only our desire or necessity. Actually we are to compress ourselves.
I don't anymore believe in the term 'Revolution' or 'Anti-establishment'. I have seen so many people who pronounced to be anti-establishment but who later became a part of establishment. I don't want put myself into that paradox. "Everyone wants to reach the top, but tell me, how far is it from the bottom? I generally know beforehand what I would be painting. It's just the way of execution, which I am not sure about, when I start. I have no other source of living, but I am not too concerned about this. I am more concerned about the fact that my paintings reflect aspirations of the present generation. My paintingís element of fantasy is related to my desires and emotions. This is very relevant and always omnipresent in my painting. It is suggestive of where we are going and which I cannot do and what is not possible in reality, but the desire to make these impossible things true is what makes me paint in this way.
I represent my figure to spread out, expanded, and try to make them to adjust any accommodation and usage objects like the same. Single human form represents our monistic thinking who try to make a one act play.
