ALL MATERIAL THINGS MELT
An urban environment is always in a constant state of ‘decay,’ where all material forms eventually disintegrates, deform and fuse into these unrecognisable organic forms of matter. This is visible particularly in densely packed metropolitan cities of India. The imagery in these works in drawn form studies of piles of decay from dump sites and the state that is between the process of something disintegrating and deforming depicted through layers of drawing and collage. In the case of the last two images in this series where there are human forms immersed within these spaces, the works represent the darkness of living in these kind of apocalyptic spaces and the nature of these landscapes.
