Taking a glimpse into the past , from where we have evolved seeing the past in the present time zone .
Such objects give us the sentiments attached with our roots to cherish .
I (Jasleena Singh)am an artist based in New Delhi .
My work is about the daily use objects, which are now rarely used or not at all.
This body of work is fueled with old school styling and day to day used instruments.
Life is about cherishing the history and reminiscing the present.
These works include my very own personal take on art with joy and pastel shades of the Retro Era.
Ranging from literal interpretations to metaphorical synthesis, these paintings incorporate dreams, emotions and expressions that influence my work.
This graceful look is the essence of my work, through these elements of daily use.
The use old texts & paper, calligraphy, different fonts on my canvas as a background that makes the bond even more stronger and clear, whilst preserving the physical vanity of the objects/ elements of the bygone era.
Also portraying the ever-growing sentiments, local histories and narratives of folklore and tradition.
My paintings are a manifestation of my muse in realistic experimental form.
These elements reflect an era through which India’s culture has grown through, and is standing where it is today. Seeing all this or perhaps these objects have seen time changing and shifting, and surely have helped in the constantly ever-growing society.
Such objects exist to be our superstructures like our monuments as a reminder of an era where all this was an essential part.
Through this body of work I am trying to portray the rich legacy and cultural history of our bygone era, while showing the displacement and migration, which was hence brought to independence after a huge long struggle.
