There is uniqueness in the vastness of nature that we start to see us own reflection in it. Nature is the deepest truth in our surroundings. And the same truth I see in the spider webs is associated with life’s alteration. Nature’s connection from one end to the other and the process of becoming, again and again, makes a person feel steady at every step and this is a process associated with my work. Even the contemporary reality of today’s complex world and the virtual world is also a web, where zillions of web servers and websites navigate and spread information from one end to another end. But I look at the web as a source of internal navigation of my mind to soul.I used a rotting pen on paper as a medium to capture the line in my work. The pen strokes are very enhancing the quality of calmness and peace of mind as fragile and precious as a spider web. The white color in my work represents serenity and peace, while the black color represents sophistication, firmness, mystery, and emotion. I like to defy the stereotypes around the color black as dark and gloomy.
