Artist's Statement :

Consumer culture is considered a defining feature of contemporary life which states a relationship between ready-mades and beings that defy the growing attraction of the mass towards the ready-mades and how the ready-mades are being imposed on people, where I feel an existing identity crisis both in case of the product and the being. Therefore my executions revolve around this concept and on observing my neighboring areas on this aspect, I think this to be a bigger issue since the production of ready-made products results in an identity crisis and also indicates the discomforts about the growing consumer culture. According to me, ready-mades not only covers the area of garments, packaged foods etc, but its shadow falls on the traditional practices too, leading to the production of certain types of specimen. Therefore the executions create a notion of consumer culture in global and local aspects. The process of production seems to be like a uniform which is getting into the same sort of identity that again defies a loss of identity.
My practice is based on my observations of my surroundings and my imagination, where I use references of imageries and staged photography to execute my ideas or interpretations. Therefore, my executions are the depiction of absurd imagery through which I share my experiences and thoughts. In other words, my approach is more of a surrealistic approach, where the use of images is in a manipulated way, trying to establish my comments.
