At times I observe combinations of aerial landscapes , cities bubbling with action in my abstracts. The cities  become lively with facial features . To me cities are not geographical elements but they are living forms containing an assortment of habitats and especially the humans constructing and consuming them. I compare cities with machines – bustling , emanating ,fuming with life . With increasing boldness the entire play look fearlessly eye catchy . I see myself heading towards simplification with minimalism and flat play fields .

To express beyond this point , I am experimenting with yet another medium which is textile. Fabric collages become smore comfortable for me to work on since I don’t bother to mix paints . It is more challenging since the medium is not fluid nor powdery . It has its own opacity for me to deal with.

I use threads, wool, various fabrics to create these collages that have scaled to yet bigger dimensions . The continuos coexisting practice of drawing and painting wants to amalgamate into a cohesive treatment. I don’t need to practise them separately . I simply began a new journey with my discovery of this medium in 2016. The cutouts amongst an array of lines is taking a new dimension in my visual vocabulary .
