2000 – “A Tangent for Nostalgia” Chithrakala parishath, Gallery 1, Bangalore.

“A Tangent For Nostalgia” Solo Show at Gallery 1, Chitrakala Parishat – , Bangalore.

Being born and brought up in the midst of Coffee Estate in a small town of Somwarpet in North Coorg district.

 I spent most of my spare time out of the house. Being near the small river-let, watching mountains for hours,

being on trees, watching birds, insects- their sounds, snakes, collecting snake skins, chasing butterflies,

trekking in the paddy fields, getting intoxicated with the smells , feel, textures….

My work got influenced with these memorable lost Nostalgia’s.  My works are related to my childhood.

It was like taking a nostalgia-filled amble into the sepia-tinted memories of my childhood.  These works are

personal and symbolic, comprising of interiors and nature outside – Textures from life and nature:
