Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Camera was absconding…. and alot more excuses…

September 25th, 2008

There are so many things happening with all of us. And it has also been good, to be a quiet spectator for some time. But, maybe this is more because of the artistic inactivity, and otherwise chaotic happenings. As I have been shifting, my motherboard-laptop collapsed, my camera was absconding…. and alot more excuses prevented me from blogging. I now hope to be back with a bang. Shall post images soon too. In comparison to my old studio, the new one is much smaller. Ironically, I am doing much bigger paintings, now. The latest is about 6 feet x 6… the next work hopes to go higher.

In the meantime, I have been also writing a few catalogues. Remember girls, I work as an art critic too :-) I feel this sort of interaction…, looking and analysing other art, really helps with my painting. I am also planning to curate a show, next year- end. A gallery in Mumbai has offered me their space to put up a curated show of Baroda artists. So next year, definately shall be more exciting for me, and I can join you happening people!!.

Most importantly we are havingthe 3For show next year. I feel we can concentrate in few cities likeMumbai, Baroda, Ahmedabad and of course our Bangalore. This I feel, would be more pratical as Delhi and Calcutta are far away. India is huge!!! And more so, I understand that if a show is seen in Mumbai first, then maybe Delhi wouldnt be so receptive, if its exactly the same. some sort of conflict… slightly maybe…
