My series in my show 'Repercussions' which happened in October 2016 was all about duality showcasing the external and internal turmoil, implications, suffering, conflict and at times even submissive passivity while the lamp of hope is still lambent. It was a mix of abstract art and surreal images with concoction of Haiku poetry to sum it all. This painting is not from the series, but was painted during the course of it though.
"Sometimes you find yourself as a vessel of your different self. Duality always perplexes me (or for that matter, anyone sensible). It is such dualities that make and break us. It is such dualities which when confronted in life that carves a niche, a haven or an abyss. As much as one wants to avoid it, it keeps happening though. It is the unclear voice within oneself that directs the whole show feeling the reigns in the grip of supposedly strong and focussed hands and yet every turbulence happen. It’s quite inexplicable to fathom that, leave alone explain it to the world. It is one such life I am in!"
That's the character below speaking!
Self and the Other
Cobbled and torn out.
Sometimes try hard
To visualize what is
And what is not.
