Deft Scapes

In the abstract works based on landscapes the artist maintains aesthetic worth over meek surrender to natural beauty. In ‘Quintessence I’ instead of guzzling the awe-inspiring scenery in a typical landscape picture, he focuses on just the razor sharp edge of the frozen lake that holds in its reflection and shadow the exotic essence of the sight. In ‘Quintessence II’ he adds depth-of-field to bring out the ephemeral in the eternal. In the artworks ‘Ode to Ladakh: the Stage & the Action’ he presents panoptic pictures almost as if to push the limits of the tonal range, depth, and details. In ‘Startification 1 & 2’ he finds straight lines in nature with the simple act of using a unique viewpoint and angle. He uses these lines to create stark separation within the picture to retain the viewing eye on the surface of the photograph instead of going through it as if in a window.
