Artist's Statement :

I am just trying to show this problem through my works of art. A person is carrying his dead body himself because there is no one to help him. The skin or leather has become sick, looking leprous. The head has been separated from the body. I have tried to represent a work where a foot is in good condition but has turned filarial in the other leg. Man is living his livelihood with his great pain. Man has become helpless and is living their life in such conditions.My work depends on waste material. I have used straw and a special kind of newspaper. At first, I have used to draw the sculptures. I have used newspaper because it can be folded easily. I have also used egg cartons, which I had soaked for a day in water. I have used fevicol, tutte (Copper sulphate) to keep my work protected from insects or fungus. We can also use it as clay. There is another roughness in texture. My works are therefore made of materials that are not harmful for our environment.
