I am a pen-and-ink-artist and photographer. I believe in the immediacy of artistic expression. Having experimented with various visual media, I have developed an appreciation for artistic rhythm in pictorial compositions. This emerges as a cross-section of frozen time in the quick sketch or the photograph - something a planned oil painting or sculpture can never deliver due to the rigors of those media.
Even though the beauty art that takes a long time to form has enchanted me, the loss of the time dimension has left me feeling stagnant, temporally disoriented and artistically stifled to a certain extent, for I feel so much of life and art, at least my art, is about time. So I have returned, time and again, to my favorite medium - pen and ink and the charcoal stick. All my drawings are from real life, done then and there. The immediacy is what I try to capture. In all my images the rhythm of time is my underlying subject. I look for the beat in all I perceive. That is what finds expression in my drawings, sketches and photographs.
I hope you enjoy the images that I have uploaded here. Please leave a comment.
