Statement

There is mention of Nar Kunjar the leela of Lord Krishna in the ancient epics, it is believed that Radha wanted to ride an elephant so Krishnas friends got together to turn themselves into one. This series has been created around this theme using the elephant as a symbol. I attempt to create humour in my work, which comes from the perception and depiction of the incongruities of existence which are always present in the folk and tribal art froms from which I draw my inspiration. I look at the scene with a child's curious mind, full of richness as well as complexity. The over all treatment is a subtle blend of an adult's experience and a child like fantasy.
