“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
