My compositions are derived from my observations and experiences in everyday life and objects around me. I have always been fascinated by simple mundane things, various shapes, forms, textures, and early architecture. I love bringing these objects to my canvas to elevate them from the mundane, into something magnificent. These still life compositions are not traditionally arranged for a drawing or painting, rather they tell stories of lives lived and take us back in time and moments. My goal is to render the morphology of objects on canvas in such a meticulous manner that they manifest the real ones. I want people to experience the objects and to let the silent music and sounds of these objects tickle our personal memories of association. I consider my work as documentation of our cultural heritage.
My process involves taking visual notes through photography, rough sketches in my sketchbook, and experiments with the composition of these documented elements as per my visual imagery to create a unique aesthetic appeal. The final outcome of my work on canvas is with acrylic as my main medium. I use acrylic paints primarily as a medium. I feel it is the flexible medium to get the desired effects and I in certain instances my work also expands into other mediums such as graphite, charcoal, woodcut. Most of the details I add in the compositions are from my memories. I use realistic techniques, add light and shadows, intricate details in the compositions that create the illusion of movement, depth, and mood to allow the viewer to imagine the work and experience in a manner where they almost live and feel the moment.
