Disintegration II, Watercolor on 300gsm Arches Paper, Size – 55” x 38” inches, Year – 2021.
This painting is one of my Surrealism series paintings. It was 2009 when I started the series with my thought of expressing the conflict of nature and mechanism. Here Steam engine signifies the invention of the Industrial Revolution which spreads fast and massively on human lives.
As a result civilization gets better but it took the cost of loss of nature. Goldfish symbolizes sensitivity where flower signifies love and affection of mother nature. We can relate how smoke is disintegrating the purity of nature and life. Where Jigsaw puzzle gives visualization of the emptiness of nature.
For an example you can relate today’s situation all over the world. This is how nature reacts when ecosystem gets disbalanced.
So in short if I say, day by day with the development of mechanisms thus making civilization strong nature is getting deployed, this is what I wanted to express in the painting.
