Artist Statement
The life we live as living creatures and every other creature around us originates from the soil disappears into the soil and transformed into new form. The excavation introduces us to the emergences of archaeological sites, where the carcasses of the created environment are revealed. In that way, even the matter of art is greatly associated with every day’s activity. My area of concern is to evolve the form of clay and provoking the emotion of landscapes and also trying to address the physicality of ceramic.
The inspiration I acquired is form my surrounding landscapes of my home town Bankura, which triggered the core work process as a ceramic art practitioner. Since my practice is deeply rooted to the memory of a place, how changes occur and evolve as time passes by interdependent on various factors. The phenomenon of ‘change’ is a continuous process which will continue to take place as long as the world exists while tracing the astounding existence of heritage.
I am not trying to reflect on the entire process of transformation, neither am I reflecting any political context of the land But, what holds my attention is that these traditional landscapes give an opportunity to imagine what is constantly moving towards urbanization.
