Art washes away the dust of daily life from our souls.
EVERY DAY I SEE SOMETHING I'D LIKE TO PAINT OR MAKE AN ETCHING OR A WOODCUT OF. I RECORD MY EXPERIENCES OF BEAUTIFUL SURPRISING MOMENTS IN NATURE IN THEIR FULL GLORY. SOMETIMES I GET LAUGHED AT ABOUT STOPPING TO TAKE A PICTURE WHILST DRIVING OR STOPPING A CONVERSATION OR A WALK TO A HALT TO STORE IN MY OWN WAY - A POINT OF INSPIRATION FOR MY PAINTINGS AND ETCHINGS. IF YOU KNOW YOU KNOW HOW MEDITATIVE AND DELICIOUS NATURE AND MUSIC CAN BE. HERE ARE SOME OF MY SELF-INITITATED PEICES THAT INSPIRE ME AND CONTINUE TO PUSH ME TO LEARN MORE IN IMPROVING MY SKILLS AND COMPOSITIONS AND COLOURS. THE SEARCH IS ETERNAL AND HIGHLY REWARDING. WELCOME TO THE INSIDE OF MY EYE!
MY ETCHINGS IN THEIR FOREVER HOMES!
STORM IN GUWAHATI, 70x100 cm, 2013.
PRINTMAKING DONE AT AN ARTISTS' RESIDENCY IN UTTARAYAN FOUNDATION, VADODARA, GUJARAT, INDIA.
I happened to be travelling through Guwahati with a friend on my way to a music festival in North-East India. We had just finished lunch and whilst standing on the terrace we were nearly blown away by the famous Assamese monsoon winds! It's the biggest storm cloud I ever saw and I just HAD to make it on the biggest metal plate I could find. Etching is a very satisfying process in which textures, line and colour make their own decisions on the metal plate when interacting with acidic chemical and pine resin. The result is a collaboration with my mind and the forces of nature!
