'Window 3' is a part of this series on divergent windows, which captures an inverse perception of the natural fauna and foliage that one would usually see, if perched at a window sill. The four cornered frame of the artwork is transposed into the four cornered framework of a camera viewfinder if placed on the window sill, and then an inverse perception of metallic extrusions forming natural fauna and clearings, is brought to the fore, with Metal sheets taking center stage and forming the quintessential branches of trees and fauna clearings. Emerging out on to the artwork, the metal sheets help in the creating a disjunctive narrative of form and view point. Tar and Copper-Dust align themselves to act as a backdrop to these emerging metaphorical branches and natural clearings.
The merging of distinct color tonalities in silver, black and white, to achieve the emanation of light from a distant clearing, amidst the highlighting of
distance and depth, allow for the amalgamation of varied media and yet to stay innately distinct. The series not only dwells on a fictional narrative but seeks to make the viewer question the use vacant spaces in the painting and by extension; our minds, through an exploration of color and space.
Tar, Molten Metal, Copper Dust, Oil Paint and Metal Sheets on Wood.
