Title : The Divine Connection

Statement of work

‘Each act of producing a work of art requires introspection, contemplation , and meditation with the gesture of the divine immanent in all art forms, says India's foremost spiritual guide, the Bhagvad Gita. Traditionally, in fact, making art was itself a reaching towards ananda, or pure bliss. It was an act of worship that signified unity with Godhead.'

Artwork is a creation ...outcome of love between artist and art . The joy and bliss of creation is akin to the unison of the two lovers. My works take me into a meditative zone. It is a mystical love for the Source that manifests through this form of art. 

The practice of Dhyan or meditation requires our consciousness to self gather, focus, discipline and move inwards towards the inner light. That is depicted by the brilliance of the centre of these works. 

Brihad Upanishad mentions the phase of meditation in which such forms make their appearance, “saffron hues raiment, red coloured beetle, flame of fire,lotus flower, sudden flashes of lightning...such forms.” The colours of this series signify this stage. 

The diverging lines depict general lifting up of faculties of being to find a natural entry into subtler planes of existence before being completely absorbed into a state of loss of separateness from the Universe or Absolute.

It’s natural that one is taken back to the Tantra and the Neo Tantra art while looking at these works for the reason that tantricism also depicts and maps the mechanism of currents of energy and distribution of creative impulses through the body and unison of consciousness with the Source.

Though thematically and philosophically close, these works are unique in their expression and do not conform to the characteristic norms and boundaries of tantra art. There is an innocent playfulness and joy that I wish to convey through this body of works yet maintaining the seriousness and sanctity of the theme. 

In today’s virtual world of stress, materialism, and rat race for success, the human consciousness has forgotten its identity and is lost in Maya. Our true ‘Identity’ which is no separate from Nature or the Universe.

 It is this separateness of identity from the Source that I endeavour to dispel through revival of Dhyan or meditation through medium of art.
