To what extent

S Vijayaraghavan

Artist’s note:

From an innate private space, I strived to exploit the potential of socio-political, personal and emotional expressions raised over self-ideology and consciousness through my artworks. My work evolves around variety, complexity, beauty and expression; juxtaposing the realm of new media technologies that brings abbreviation to an artistic expression dealing with the reality of mundane human life experiences.

I try to articulate these experiences in a more implicit, allegorical and symbolical way. In these selective body of artworks I have used single channel stop-motion animation video, mixed media on canvas evolve through our unconscious being, colonized by motorization, violence, mechanization and urbanization, deforming the habitual and the mundane. I have attempted to externalize the schizophrenia of the contemporary life facing the situation of intolerance of violation act, freedom of speech/expression and injustice against peace and Nature.

It is our inner-voice to regenerate, re-create, re-question the human ethos for positive changes in today’s democratic context.
