The shades are transforming to shadow, the shadows stand with the sorrow – is it illusion? Yes, but with strong impression. My childhood including my people, village, river and values - all are misinterpreted at the cost of ‘’Development’’ a daisy word indeed. When I take to my art, I pick up the brush to ask myself for a solution to my confusion. The cosmopolitan daily life offers me this confusion. Consumerism has been a form of human friend in its extended version for people like me and my origin. My composition reflects these and the magician form of society, with its grandeur. As an audience, I can watch the regeneration, the acceptance towards conversion in term of originality, a continuous applied technology to bow down our head, creating compulsive ground, a change crafted fear. As an icon I have used animals as representation of instincts and as individual perplexity. Some of the compositions are narrative as an obvious aftershock of individual serenity with crafted luxury, an open secret of planned metamorphosis, psychological journey towards end or a new beginning. As a child I grew up in the midst of nature and animals. In my paintings, I try to project myself as I am. I feel that the cow, with its continuous effort to understand the trends of modernity with an un-matched curiosity and bewilderment can be best described as the emblem of my own self.
