A brush remembers....... I don't remember exactly, but I think, I found myself in his hands when he was a kid. He did not know how to handle me properly. Still he loved me very much and made a bed for me under his pillow. It was uneasy for me to be in his hands. He used to make me giggle and cry on paper and canvas. I fidgeted at his hands. One fine morning, the situation changed. His hands were under a magic wand and I understood that somebody was teaching him how to handle me. Then after his hands moved precisely without giving me much struggle. I should tell one fact that in this period, I lost the freedom I was having before. He was turned a wizard travelling all the way. When I remember those old days, I feel that the academic studies, stylization and personalizing through creating an outlook gave me an understanding as to how useful this could be to me, as a brush in his hands and to my surrounding as a nature. After 5 long years, I felt breeze, rain and sun. He carried me every where. I did many things on canvas with vigor and with frenzies. I found myself in cinema sets and Ad commercials. My creations exhibited in many cities and I got both applause and shouting. In a way I was happy that people were responding to me. Gone were the days when I was a just brush. Now I am treasured by many. My vigorous works did not long last. I hated instant cinema locations and Paper and TV ads, which are telling lies. I think, he too might have felt the same. Then he started searching for the simplest and easily obtainable natural forms to express my feelings. As I am supposed to be a brush, I was sure that I can express myself through textures, colors and variations in color combinations, if only I am in proper hands. I like landscapes where `nothing happens' - no dramatic sunset or huge clouds rolling through, or deep, spiritual, breathtaking panoramas on the horizon. I paint an island road on a calm, clear day; Tamarind trees by the edge of a field; Coconut palms, rocks and banks, waters, with only a bit of road - here and there some hint of human activity - showing. I am happy to do both Realism and Abstract, but Abstract is what I enjoy the most. My creations are contemplation of nature in a Zen sort of way. And I think he too knows it and moves me in his hands in such a way that produce what you see here.
