Sugarcane is the largest crop by production in quantity in the world. It is a long lived crop that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. The seeds ones planted can regenerate healthy crop for 3 to 4 years. This associates with new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor; hence Born from ashes is an idea of this wonderful cycle of rebirth.

The work is part of ongoing project along with a short documentary film on the farmers from the rural northern part of Karnataka. Being a birth place of mine and having belonged to a farmer’s family my interest lies in exploring the daily engagement of the farmer to his land. The central theme of this project is depleting underground water and farmers who are highly dependent on it. A landscape which are planes to the eastern part of Western Ghats, having lack of rain in these areas from last five years and the establishment of sugarcane factory a decade ago has lead them to totally depend on Bore Wells.

We humans since our inception have been constantly evolved and manifested the continued progress of existence that occurs in apparently irreversible sequence of Time from the past, through the present to the future. Nature has constructed us by providing its resources and we humans have constructed our landscapes by using those resources. The Landscapes we inhabit since ages are the Spaces impart different experiences to us. For example, historically relevant places that are important because of the mythical past that humans create through stories or places that are important because an important event in human history might have taken place. These places have an identity created by people as its own; this identity is different from person to person.

Similarly my interest lies in exploring the ideas of existence and identity in a landscape which I inhabit. The process of working involves exploring a landscape in an anthropological point of view.  My recent works indulge in environmental and social consciousness imparting the contemporary relation between human and Nature. Often play a role of silent protest to shade light on the issues. Thus this starts taking shape in to a kind of documentation accumulating different forms like drawing, photography, sculpture, video & Performance. I am interested in viewing materials as metaphor to draw and sculpt, and allow my viewers to have open contemplation. The changing landscapes have constructed me as an artist over time organically. The whole process of perceiving and executing is a journey that helps me in studying myself too.
