Concept Note

My artworks are predominantly mysterious landscapes and forests. Deep and dark woods, water, rivers, forest fires to lush vegetation and greenery, are my hymns to what I see with my eyes closed.

I paint in the silence of the night. I need that isolation and solitude to be able to become the medium for art. It is a time of mystery, beauty, darkness anddivinity. A moment of communion between the higher power and us. It is indeed true that the spirit has to work with the hand, to make art.

My paintings are a bit of my soul. And a bit of you. While I create them – you make them complete. While I paint, you see and understand them in the ways more than I do. That is why we are here. This place is for you as much as it is for me.

I am a self-taught artist and I love that I walked this way. The process of learning and unlearning, searching and seeking, discovering and finding, has been a long one with million moments of agony and ecstasy. I paint what I see, only to end up discovering many worlds unseen. Letting the works form by themselves is another way to meeting messages from beyond, on their own and in their own time. For me, my works are the visible form of invisibility.
