ON MY WORKS

My works are revelations stanching out from personal experience. I am unable to spot out the sprouts from where it originates, of which I could only say that it has an affinity to my experiences. Before it transcends itself to iconic conventions. I often attempt to make them narratives. I narrate these stories to myself. These exercises emancipate me from trauma of these experiences. That enables me to utilize the ornate style of a narrator while drawing back the experiences to canvases. That helps me to escape from the mundane to the freedom of imaginary world.

North Indian Miniatures, Mural paintings and the picturesque landscapes of Kerala have its bearing on my art.
