My artistic process begins with a desire to understand “universal energy”: how each of our consciousnesses explores visual forms. Two primary forms inhabit my work: Dots and Lines, which together evoke everything in the universe. Dots are atoms, cells, and stars. Lines are the continuity of life. I believe that the Line is the extended form of the Dot, but I also try to observe these as independent entities. I try to use all of my senses to observe and investigate these forms. The interaction of dot, line, color, and pattern generates the energy I seek to understand and make visible. I experience a sense of vibration across the multidimensional surface during this process. I am interested in the properties of colors, including viscosity & velocity, which provide a tactile surface experience that is open to many interpretations.
I am fascinated by the correlation between science and art, particularly through my own experience with analysis in neuroscience. In the search for the evidence of universal human consciousness, I experience connections with the occult, the surrealists’ so-called pataphysics (metaphysics), and theosophy. Coming from India, I try to develop a common language in my works, which should not be limited to one’s own culture, religion, or race. I am also interested in the meeting points of Eastern and Western philosophical and psychological traditions, which influences my imagination and shapes my awareness.
