My canvases present a concrete vista of urbanity synchronized with the nuances of rural life. They affirmatively speak about the spontaneous and restless acts of the migrated day laborers. The imageries further tend in mirroring the rigidity and flexibility of the urban-rural life suggested through the constructive abstract forms. The street lights, zebra, zebra-crossing, etc act as a metaphor for such urban rigidity as opposed to the plow-share, mostly seen in my earlier paintings as a central object or platform projecting the concept of nothing in everything.Here I quoted nothing in everything, in order to emphasize the very nature of mens vast expectation that- he runs after everything and when he gets everything, he is satisfied by nothing.


As an artist, I took this as a subject in revealing my artistic emotions, for the reason that I too am a man of blood and flash and like every other individual I have also remained a victim of the so-called expectation. Moreover, personally, I have been hailed from a farmer family and then came to this city as a migrant with eyes full of desires. So, when I see the roaming numbers on the roads, stations, buses, etc., I just amaze thinking about their degree of expectation and to what extent are they going to be satisfied.


Therefore, most often I try to communicate this flavor of an unending quest to my audience-either physically or virtually. In my installation work Expecting the Expectation, I made one such attempt to make anybody understand the de-limiting attitude of the term expectation itself.


In Look- inside/outside, I used the flames of smoke in the glass of the window to create a dreamy-cloudy atmosphere, from which he merge several interesting forms that seemed to fascinate me for a time longer. During my childhood, when I used to seat for my lunch, most often I used to see a plane flying outside in the sky through the window of the kitchen. Most interestingly that window was in front of the earthen hearth, so the plane appears to me sometimes in the midst of the clouds while some other times against the smoky flames of the hearth. This put me in a very situation and I just wondered to know the facts related to its mechanism, who are they sitting there, where are they going, how do they feel when they cross the clouds, can I ever sit there or what I am seeing is nothing but a toy of my play.


Again, in The blackest air I tried to express my grief that human civilization has gifted the nature-the polluted air all around is a definition of mens vast expectations.


In Towards the Death or Birth, I have displayed a number of scenes showing a burning hut-the different stages of burning, till it turns into ashes. In this work, I just tried to put a question in my viewers minds, Is this the beginning or an end.
