gallery/tushar waghela

             The world we live in is full of incredible truths and myths. The themes and narratives of my creations come from the facts and philosophies of life. They have a relation with the spirits of Indian heritage, art, culture and socio-political issues . It is an anecdotic series each one epitomizing its own tale. All the compositions have an indeterminate and anonymous destination to conquer, every tale touches its goal but ends up with a question mark for you to ponder over the image it has placed before you. The contents are not stationary; not at rest, instead are suspended in a state of reallocation; trying to speak out something, prompting you to peep inside the windows kept deliberately open. It is an invitation to participate in the ongoing triumph and be a part of the happenings inside.

Truth is a mobile army of metaphors, metonyms and anthropomorphisms –-- a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed & embellished poetically & rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical & obligatory to us.

       I present an art which has bred inside me for long but just given been birth to.
