From my country of origin, I inherited my irreverent usage of Indian colours. India's social heterogeneity leads to visible physical disorder in every aspect which uniquely creates a feeling of inclusiveness. Ingrained in my paintings is this feeling of inclusiveness, love and courage for humanity irrespective of religion or multi-society cultural behaviour , and my passion for the beauty and elegance of women in every part of the world. India highly treasured values of inclusiveness and compassion are what I like.
French inspiration:France inspires me as it is extremely secular and inventive; freedom of expression is respected without any boundary here. Very high aesthetics and imaginative power pervade every act of life. There's a deep sense of love of human life and perpetual search for differentiation that distinguishes French society as unique in the world.
Creating Gesturism Art:Being inspired by French culture and art movements, I needed to find my own identity of my art works so I created a new conceptual art current with paintings and Désordre harmony.
Palette of irreverent Indian colours: Differences of
religion, language, food, culture and way of living and
dressing radically change almost every 500 kms among
India 1.2 billion population.
There is no dogmatism in Indian culture between good and bad as in western society. So everybody has the freedom to use any colour for any occasion. This results in Indian colours being seen to be irreverent which I have taken as my colour palette. So irreverent Indian colours rule over my art.
Painting:To do my paintings I always use big size, wide
brushes. The wider they are, I feel more free to express
myself. At first glance viewers may see splashes of colour
in my painting canvas, but there will be some mysterious
figurative aspect in my paintings that viewers will
I even surprise myself when I see the not-to-be-said part. I work in different media like acrylic, conte, pastel, mixed media and water colour , and use different surfaces like canvas and paper from small to big size.
Désordre Harmony:The origin of my idea of "Désordre" is influenced by India's heterogeneous population of extreme diversity that results in unpredictable physical disorder in every aspect of life. Arrival and merging of migrants since ancient times from Greece, Africa, Central Asia, Iran, Afghanistan, Europe and more recently 200 years of British colonization in the Indian subcontinent has created this situation over time.
