With “body aesthetics” being fundamental to my creations, the discovery of this series of abstract paintings is a profound development for me. It is a process of moving away from the pictorial narrative to the incomprehensible, a transfiguration of the body as painted images on the canvas and venturing further by portraying the canvas as the body itself. In this psyche, I am replicating the bodies through a queer process of construction and deconstruction. Bodies are now abstractly shown in object form or the “flesh object”; to capture the basic existence of human being.
