& what’s that… that’s the title of my solo exhibition in Consulate General of India, New York (CGI, NY). These very simple couplet of words smoothly landed when I was thinking what could be the title of my solo… & it sounded just apt… & why so… you see… I started sculpting out of the blue… from no where it was a possible thought that I would play in mud when I am supposed to grow my grey hair. It was mutual for me & my sculptures that we both came alive with the touch so beautiful… I blew life in mud & it in return whispered life within me… That’s nothing but ‘coming alive…’ Everyone without exception would linger around my sculptures feeling what I had to say through it… their innermost expressions touched …. came alive… & suddenly words would start flowing effortlessly saying how correctly my sculptures have touch the cord… age no bar… children would go around… would ask if they could touch the sculpture… so also the art students… & art teachers… & people who have walked in because they have time in between… Everyone’s curiosity came alive… are they of metal.. how do you colour them… may I touch to confirm they are of clay & not metal? your sculptures are so expressive that they say what you say… I loved them all because they spared their precious time thinking about every sculpture of mine… they desired to feel the vibration of the clay which had connection of my within… that unspecified bond came atouch sculpture exhibitionlive… That’s when my sculpture ‘living in Rift’ came alive with the touch of a visually impaired, visiting the Monmouth Museum, New Jersey themed exhibition, ‘touch sculpture’… how deep it touches you…. & that’s why.. it’s COMING ALIVE for me .. you … & everyone…
