Let go


A solo show is a good reason to pause and look back.

The craft has reduced. The need for craft, too.

I am not thinking of shapes and shaping - or colours, or colouring any more.

The effort is disappearing. The need to shape, to look a certain way : quest of beauty is going away.

Am I becoming indifferent to the outcome?

The struggle against the medium seems to be fading.

It's started listening to me, as I have started listening to it.

It's allowing the work to happen. I am allowing the work to happen.

The work has been flowing and moving.

I am throwing away lesser number of works now.

Thankfully, the joy of art has grown.

That's me, in May 2019, at Let Go, solo show of my works at Nehru Center, Mumbai.
