RE-FILLED Creating ‘Filled Spaces’ …these works are about acts of filling, to overcome the surrounding emptiness. My works are about Making/Inventing spaces for self. It’s about believing in these ‘Made’ and ‘Found’ surroundings and to live in/with it. These spaces form in to a fabricated universe of personal myths and fantasies. I have repeatedly worked with self-image and the idea of autobiography. Attempts are to invent underlying various dimensions in these introspective notations. As I believe personal beliefs are shaped by one’s external surrounding; Self-image and personal beliefs are the starting points which lead to wider concerns of social behavior. Works revolve around the growing of personal in to the external surrounding and vice-versa. The protagonist is captured playing roles in these entangled and overlapped worlds.
