Describing the title of the project, Sitaram says, “What I want to portray is not just the grey appearance of cement or concrete but the deeper meaning of grey which stand here as a metaphor of uncertainty, anxiety and impermanence. This is again quite relevant to the contemporary situation which is opposite to the nature of concrete that is a strong and a permanent material. But, all around us it seems very unstable and impermanent because of continuous construction and deconstruction.” Painting flowers, insects, clouds or other vibrant elements of nature with cement hints a strong irony. “The idea is to portray all the natural aspects those are slowly disappearing because of vast urbanisation such as sky, clouds, plants, flowers, etc and again painting them with cement, which is a primary and prominent material in the urban surrounding, gives it a layering of satire on the contemporary Indian urbanisation,” sums up Sitaram.
