The journey of visual imagery transformed from exemplifying the obstacles of one’s life, and the struggle to survive, by using sparrow as a symbolically. By adding a companion of sparrow in my paintings, I comment on the expectations and much sought after ‘happy life’ which, often remained missing. The sparrow symbolizes innocence and fragility therefore; I see a reflection of myself in it.
The clouds represent a never-ending space and resilience that life present to everyone as a play field. Though a companion shares your anguish and contributes to your endeavors, still there is a never vanishing loneliness and vacuum, that life fears and possesses. I, by using multi layers in clouds, share the ambiance that this forlorn journey has been through. At times, alone physically, and at times mentally, missing the soulmate, rather than a so-called life and its partner.
