Presence of Light (2014)
Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if only you remember to turn on the light, this quote has stayed with me. To me, light is symbolic of happiness, positivity and hope and maybe that is why I thought of converting my art into objects that exude optimism. Generally, we are the most scared when we are in the dark, we are the darkest when we are depressed and this when a single trace of light can make you smile.
All the paintings of this collection talk of hope and positivity – of simply stunning intricacies and of something that goes much beyond its face value. I have used radium to light them up, when it is dark.
