The transition between the 20th and 21st Century is most important to me as an expression of creative time of my paintings. The evolutionary images of old monuments, ruins, caves, ancient places where one can almost hear the footsteps of history, are aesthetically composed keeping in mind the philosophy governing socio-economic life placed against the backdrop of a historical time frame. This juxtaposition opens up a broad spectrum in my paintings. It creates an allegorical resonance of the historical past with the contemporary period.  I expound my conceptual introduction briefly to the viewers.

The lost paradise of my past like adieu to the setting sun, the residue of the ruins, the entity of life and ever flowing belief are conceivable in my art elements, I am able to transfigure into the abstract art-forms and figments from the fossilisation, vibration, sacraments which are perceived through the allegory of “Sacred Stones”, “Stagnant Water”. I search these in my various insights.

At the core of my artistic abilities lies the desire to create unusual images of spatial and temporal variations. The essence of this is evident in the pictorial trend set as I evolve as an artist. Pictorial time and space are depicted using variegated tones of various colors.

As a mature and experienced colourist, my philosophy of colour dominates the entire painting area with the various layer-bound skins of colour and reflections. This language of colour is the transitional language of my paintings. The innate lightness of colour creates illusion and vibrancy. The concept of spectrum effect of my painting highlights my originality, trends and technique. As a result my painting encourages a massive distant range of vision. I recognise this as the visual range-effect of painting, through which it acquires the ineffable quality of dimension of the ultraclassicism of painting.

The quality of colourful depth, its tenderness, simplicity, fluidity and solidity are measured scientifically as per variation of properties, such as velocity, gravity, volume, weight and proportion of colour and light. As a result of these measured variations, the plastic quality of colours essentially depicts an unusual tendered beauty of ultraclassical art. This knowledge and conscious colour exploration has established me as a colourist painter.

I paint using a heavy body of colourful depth with dense pigments impasto. I prefer to use the sensitivity of surface, its touch and feel, applying texturous paint skin and porous brushings with intermingled layers of thick and thin colours.

The centrifugal character of composition and outward expression creates a monumental and expanding quality in my painting that surges forward to embrace the viewer.

According to the requirements, soft and sharp edges are use in making plasticised lines, which are dynamic and are cut short controlled and harmonised. The insulated felt-contents articulate my emotions into convincing pictorial sensation with latent gestures. Intertwined elements of felt-content create calm, quiet, fluid and floating shapes of non representational nature that traverse space which transcends into a floating structure within the pictorial space that persists in the mind. It permeates the viewer's consciousness and is imbibed by their hearts.

My paintings are complete in nature, incorporating vital aspects and concepts of ultramodern classical elements of art.
