Artist Statement: My work is the response to the events occurs in life. I use symbols to generalize the idea. This work depicts the subconscious. Our subconscious mind contains a lot of stuff which we observe, see, hear and feel. According to me our subconscious mind is the mother of our conscious mind. Our subconscious and conscious mind works when we communicate with ourselves. We meet our true selves when we practice Soliloquy (state of mind in which we talk to ourselves). My work is about subconscious, conscious and Soliloquy.
