About The Artwork

smaraNa in sanskrit means “recollection”. Deep in the foothills of the Himalayas staring at the majestic sun kissed snow laden mountains around you one can’t help but feel a sense of calm. Its like meditating with your eyes open. Though this series I have attempted to register the calm that the eyes could see, the body could feel and the mind could transcend. Each image holds secrets. Secrets that unravel themselves each time you look. Looking at the images helps me recollect the feeling of transcendence I felt amidst those mountains.

My work explores the intersections between religion, spirituality and sexuality often questioning our current moral value system that seems to have been established through a mass blind acceptance of a normalised truth claim . Using colours and symbolisms, inspired from historical texts, I further my narratives by developing staged scenes to create a tension between the real and the fictional. By blurring the lines between the real and the imagined I try to force the viewer to ponder over alternate interpretations of their beliefs and possibly invite them to understand the duality of moral values. That there is no black and white in morality and that right and wrong is but a mere perspective which can shift with wisdom acquired by knowledge.
