Window Inwards

I was Inspired by the texture and feel of a doorway during one of my travels .The memory of  the texture stayed with me.I remember feeling the structure and that feel had stayed in the memory of my fingers.

When I started working on this painting ,I knew that the memory of that feeling will have to be translated on the canvas....

the composition itself started from there....

The water ,the sky which I could see from the doorway at that moment was the freedom I felt....

The doorway itself ...the concrete structure of the mind...through which we see the world ...the expanse without...

And yet when you follow a path you realize that all the freedom comes with boundaries...well defined boundaries.

Are these boundaries self imposed?

In this work ,I felt the flight of  freedom and the limits of the boundaries.

To be able to enjoy the freedom of mind,to be able to consider the world as your oyster,to have the expanse as the home for your imagination, for yourself....the bounds have to be respected too...

Almost like the boundaries of the Canvas on which this was painted...to create the beauty on the canvas ,I had to respect the depth,the texture,the limitations ,the bounds of this canvas...

And so with everything ,every relationship in life...

What those boundaries are ....you decide

The relationship between the medium and the artist has its own boundaries..

the paths we follow have their own...

the space is bound by the limits of our vision...

every relation between self and another element is bound by the nature of the being and the nature of the element ....

This painting represents That freedom and that bound..

and the bond between the two,The freedom and boundary, creates the balance....

balance without which no composition is pleasing, no relationship is fulfilling ...

no life is inspired......
