Approach is the platform from where you start to delve in a subject line.You chose your plane too.Either you choose to reverberate in the body or you choose a different domain,the mind.This defines you,sets your base from where you define who you are.As you dig deeper you explore intensely into the subject that is essentially You.The whole circus is about You really and that is what you also project outward through your sensory organs and display them in front of an audience..you are merely trying to introduce You to them.
We are as Human beings seekers; We seek in Nature,we seek in Life, we seek in human contact, we seek in love, lust and exuberance.We seek to find the connection that can liberate us but what we most often find is a discerning, frustrating, and complex behavior that seldom translates to what we are hoping to confront… mostly it’s the actual opposite. All our instruments to please and attract fall flat and we summon what we call a heartbreak, failure, repentance, and depression. Why? …because we tried that hard to project Me to You and You are not in Sync with me. You don’t understand…nobody does, not even who you seek out the most, your Soul mate.Nobody is the mirror image and can echo the thoughts just as you think, live them as you do…there are no two people who can think exactly in the same manner and there is a rift, disaccord in conception, belief, Thought and Action.
Your art form is thus a projection of you.It will not lie because that is the only thing that is in absolute sync to who you are.Artists in their form have found their brush strokes,colour pallete,impressions and expressions,ideas and thoughts , essentially translate to paper,canvas,stage or any platform they choose to enact ,therein projecting themselves , transferring themselves on a visual platform to be seen,exposing , becoming vulnerable to themselves while they do so.
So, we are our expression,my approach to Nudity was looking essentially the Being in the Body and I named the series’ La Venus- The Being and the Body.I have always thought,the mind is sexier than what a body can go farthest to explore and present. There is a limitation in just exploring the body but the mind is what turns the body to perform in its entirety whether in love, ecstasy, hate, or depression.The expression can change.So the boat is the body and the steering wheel is the mind. When I perceive my Nudes from that angle the perspective changes from just’removing a petticoat’ .Nude then becomes whole,a part of Nature, pure and soulful, free.It is beyond, infinite, limitless.Nude then seizes to be merely erotic and becomes sublime.
To sum up, you are your Art,I am my Art.@Swagata Bose
