Description


In this sculpture "The Universal Spiral", I have tried to depict the amazing structural uniformity found in the Universe. “As above so below, as within so without” - this adage found in the ancient civilisations of the Indian subcontinent, the Greek and the Egyptian points to the observation that the spiralling and revolving movement found at the atomic level (electrons and neutrons), to the planetary level (planets and satellites), to the galactic level (stellar systems revolving the central black-hole) and up to eventually the inter galactic movements wherein the galaxies perhaps revolve around the central nucleus on the Universe. Here, I am attempting to illustrate that this kind of spiral / revolving movement around a nucleus is of a universal form, from the micro-cosmic to the macro-cosmic.

Human want is infinite, anything finite cannot quench its thirst. Hence, consciously or unconsciously, we seek something transcendental, something beyond the world of senses.

This quest to 'know the unknown' forms the very basis of my artistic endeavour. 

 

Transcendental experiences have led me to the realisation that the crisis in the contemporary world is not really political, social or economic but actually an evolutionary crisis of humanity as a whole. Therefore, the need of the hour is to initiate the dialogue between the outer and the inner realms/worlds.

 

In order to achieve this daunting task, I experiment with the science of aesthetics to establish the link between finite and infinite, in the realm of the idea as well as form. 

Hence my works are imbued with exoteric yet esoteric sensibilities that seamlessly link ephemeral to eternal.

 

Obscure questions like the purpose of life, truth about existence propelled my mind towards the ideas for my artistic expression. Hence, my work encompasses every aspect of universal existence - science, philosophy, history, social, cultural, mysticism etc.

 

To me, art is a joyful expression of the human soul. I wish to create visual poetry that touches the core of the human heart. Through my works, I want to expand the mental wavelength of people so they can extend bliss.

 

I do not want to limit myself to any specific medium or style, lest the free expression be hindered. For me the medium of creation must be as malleable as possible to give form to my creativity. The final material of execution is immaterial as long as the form does its job of evoking sense of freedom and bliss.
