"PHILOSOPHY OF NEW CONCEPT OF COLLEGES"
During olden days paintings on monuments/forts/temples-walls and inner surfaces of caves were made with the help of colors obtained directly from natural resources viz. flowers,leaves, tree-stems,roots etc. Sometime these crude natural colors are processed/treated mixed with oil/resins suitably to enhance their life .With change of technological advancement ,the colors of different varieties viz oil/acrylic/water colors etc. etc.having brightness and self-life are commercially processed.These are available in market.Mostly all paintings/pictures are made with these available colors on paper/cloth canvas.
Earth possessed colorful natural materials of immense varsities-flowers leaves, twigs, petals, bark of trees leaves etc. Why not to use these natural materials directly adopting suitably drying process.. ?.Thing that discarded by nature to perish in time become my starting point for my mind.To suit my way of working i found new concept/philosophy making compositions using these natural colors/textures/forms on treated bark of palm tree leaves.It become an interesting process of finding objects and elements from nature & rejuvenate them which offers a new life & identity in my compositions .It was challenging process each time i worked because my palette consisted only of natural materials & colors.
Nature is constant change it's human mind which immortalizes it ,hence new concept of making with above philosophy "Collages" generated by me after pasting/gluing all natural materials directly on canvas-bark.
i define this Collage as "IMMORTALS"*
( *perishable natural things converted
to an Art which remains forever)
