DESIRE - V

It is the Search for what can at least partly be attained, being detached from all the material aspects. That is why human being figures in most of my paintings. On one hand man tries to maintain his existence by sticking to material aspects of life. On the other hand he ignores his mere physical existence only to attain something beyond his material longings. He tries to tear asunder the hard realities of life. He begins to dream --- the kind of Dream that tries to touch the Infinite. The colour of man’s Dream is blue. Dream tries to get to the Sky, which is Infinite, Vast and immense. That which is infinite and immense expresses itself in blue. So the colour Blue and the Infinite get merged into one cosmic hue --- that is Blue.
The Moon in some of my paintings is suggestive of the personification of Dream, Hope etc. And the triangular shape expresses the Heart’s ascension. Herein lies the co-existence Dream and heart Reality of life, simply because human heart is the accouchement of Dream, but Dream feels drawn towards the Infinite against the Heart’s gravitation.
