Out of the box

From: 17-5-2015 To: 8-6-2015


Out of the box

City streets, alleyways, squares, buildings, people, vehicles, creatures, cigarettes, wooden parts, litter, billboards and rubber tyres... elements jostling against one another within the narrow confines of a turbulent city... some eager to break loose and find themselves a place far away from the concrete mass.

Carrying his camera, the artist climbs up to the highest point of the city, from which, paradoxically, he seems to be closer to the ground. During his search for a cohesive image of these vibrant abstract configurations and dynamic relationships, the element of coincidence plays a major role in attaining much of this overall vision to reveal the various abstract interactions and dynamics out of the box.

Uncaring of the laws and systems governing the existence of these urban elements (including the laws of nature such as gravity, perspectives, sources of light, and so forth), the artist exercises his ability to set in motion, break down, tear apart, and re arrange the different parts according his own logical framework and the set of laws which he has superimposed on a new world using new functionalities outside the given frame governing their existence. While indulging in this pleasurable activity whose blameless foray derives from the metaphysical and/or surreal aspect of the tableau, the artist compensates by respecting the canvas and its intrinsic worth.

Driven by a single subject from an equally single perspective, the image can vary according to the shifting mood and emotional state of the artist.  This is because the artistic experience here lies juxtaposed between two opposing states: inasmuch as it may be subjected to public taunts and mockery, the artist's work addresses the cares and struggles of a frenetic urban society whose elements feverishly seek some semblance of stability in a safe haven away and out of the box.
