A seed. A germinated seed, from germination to sapling, sapling to a tree, tree to a fruit, fruit to seed again, seed to germination. Thus is the cyclical process of the nature. Again, seed to plant, plant to flower, and the connection of one flower with the other flower, an important recurring process called pollination. For me as visual artist and to my sensitive mind these outwardly simple and biological processes catch my imagination and I take the journey of probing into these hidden processes. Various stages of pollination processes render various shapes and forms, different formations, made me to use these elements in visualization and to enhance the aesthetic value of my work. The current series is all about pollination.

Any concept in order to be used in visual art raises many issues. The visual language I use to express my inner thoughts denote the understanding I had of the concept.

I believe creation of art is a replica of the truth and art should always speak truth. In the process of visualizing, as an artist I encounter two processes – of philosophical and the other technical. The former belongs to the mind and other related to the physical elements in a work of art. Philosophical element consists of in interest in the subject, knowledge, visual sensibilities and imagination. The physical elements include the usage of time, space and the other material mediums that finally give shape to a work of art. I believe the combination of all of the above leads to creation of things of aesthetic beauty.

The contemporary world has seen technological advances than any other time of human history. The impact of technology on our thoughts and projects has changed the way we live and art is no exception. At times I feel technology is a challenge to the creative process but at the same time it can be harnessed to create a thought provoking art. I have kept both dynamics in mind while
creating these paintings and drawings, based on experiments and the rules of aesthetics.
