About This Piece
This is a strong artwork based on our Harappan Civilization.
At the left bottom there is a milestone leading to the actual Harappan site. As location lies in Pakistan so in native language Urdu it says Harappa 1 km.
And as you travel you explore the different seals of the period used at that time. With your further expedition you will uncover the script of the civilization on the entire background of the canvass.
The images transferred on to the canvas here are replete with nature that substitutes the external one translating feeling and emotions. I strongly believe art should energize and revitalize you along with giving you peace and pleasure.
The creations are about the inner journey, one that portrays about a personal response to the landscape. Exploration, observation and careful thoughts are the key to success. Ideally there should be some interaction between size of the objects and horizon. Good composition is to judge what to leave out as it is and where to lay the detailing.
I always carried very specific eye for detail where ever I lived or worked. My creations share a love of realism and rustic pattern, mix of colors like blue, orange and grey that continues to be part of me.
I have a long relation with nature, probably since my childhood. I ask you, “where is the realism of yesterday?” One should not forget the way our forefathers use to tap it on their canvas.
Do you know the life they lived, the man made structures slowly creeping into the earth, smoke from the chimney of the mill floating up at an angle?
John Cage very well said, “We need not destroy the past.
It has gone.”...............................
