Artist Statement:
To me, a painting is as much a personal memoir as it is a visual communique to my audience. "Variegated" is a new experimental series I'm working on - where my wish is to express the variety in the urban fabric - its many colors, material, textures, sentiments & stories. To do that, I've tried to go beyond the traditional use of watercolor by trying out different applications of water media (transparent watercolors, gouache & water-soluble pencils). The treatment is more like a collage presented in a contemporary urban format. The narrative is complex & non-linear - like a typical urban scene.
