My work does not directly engage with any one particular social or political issue, it takes on a more individual almost autobiographical role in terms of a mental response or reaction towards the issues that we as humanity are trying to grapple with. My work engages with the constant changes that we collectively have to adjust and adhere to, my paintings move from chaos and hysteria, to depiction of hope and serenity, emotions every individual would feel in different circumstances and situations, to finally realization and comprehension of life’s processes, of understanding that everything is, has been and will be in a constant state of Flux ( change). And even in destruction and chaos something new and stable is created. My work tries to explore the changing mental landscape of the human mind.


‘While Goyal is no outsider to whatever is loosely deemed as ‘Modernism’, the imaginative qualities that he frequently seems to project in his work are drawn from the still living Nritya tradition and which is so largely reflected in the Indian dance forms. Forms, both art wise in their higher rung, as much as in the rites, rituals and ‘spiritistic’ communions of the folk. You just have to watch his key images to realize this aspect of his genre. Well, even if any other artists happen to share his unusual vision, his own acute, spare symmetry steeped manner takes his compound creations to an elevated plane. They become artistically compelling; his geometrical rhythms suggesting a movement which energizes and quickens our pulse.’




[Video - Dhanur Goyal: The Viewer Decides What My Work Means]


As a child, I have seen my mother paint, which has been the biggest influence in my life. For me, fine art is an attempt to understand our own existence by sharing and expressing the art. It is solely based on how the viewer interprets it, which enables the artist to embrace his own work through constructive criticism and generate a sort of reaction from the society in which we live in.
