I paint out of some sort of compulsion. I started to paint when I felt that what I was experiencing was beyond the realm of words and that needed to be expressed, if I wanted to remain SANE. Painting for me is a medium that allows me to reclaim that which gets eroded by everyday life. It helps me to crate a centre, a space where I can return to and reclaim my equilibrium; the process of painting is cathartic. Painting to me is not about the color and the techniques. It’s about the life that I live and engage with. Idea is not to engage with the form of my chosen subjects, it is to capture, to penetrate the essence.
