Statement

Working with Newspaper known as print media leads to printing slide "untitled", which tells us about two different generations & the contrast between the two. In the first printing the foreground consists of an old man sitting on a bench. The background is covered with the hoardings of Sunday times in an ancient car model. The motifs supporting the other area of painting too are of renaissance period. There lies a close resemblance between all these three things. On the other hand the next painting reveals the story of new generation believing in discipline where a corner of a house is shown neat & clean whereas the landscape lying in the background reflects the thought of use & throw hence giving a contrast. The outlined figure symbolizes a figure reading newspaper & the other figure holding a newspaper in a come back mode is nearly an illusion.
