"Drawing and/or painting are the amalgamation of skill and
perception/conception. These words encompass my theory of art. I am more
attracted to the imaginative potential of dreams and the unconscious, and its presence is
evident in my treatment. I simply draw and paint to satisfy my inner soul. I
paint reality of the dream, and the subconscious mind, and want to explore its dimensions.
Each day I explore a window that takes me to myself. I am trying to follow
the traces of great masters, dream, reality, chance operations, rapid thoughtless forms
and unconscious mind are the key words in my work.
Figure drawing and representational forms have been my basic
interest for quite sometime, but from a couple of years I am becoming more interested in
discovering creative aspects of drawings as a medium of painting"
