TRUMAN SWIMMING TOWARDS A NEW HORIZON
SERIES II (2011)
The works in this series morph into ‘fluid interactions and reactions with elements of the fantastic woven into the narrative story’. The protagonist draws inspiration from animals and tries to imbibe their behavioural pattern in his interactions, depicted in ‘Trueman swimming towards a new horizon’ where inspiration is taken from a school of fish, their strength in numbers, the strongest supporting the weakest.Drawn from personal references, experiences and memories, the images and forms visualise spontaneously in monochromatic and minimalist palettes. From the renditions, the viewer conveys alternative plateaux of imagination. Linearity, as such, does not exist between the figurative and the abstract.
