Artist Statement
The ovoid organic forms in the mid-order of the sculpture braces manifestation of the generative energy and protective potential of nature in blossoming of lives and Joy. Winged butterfly in the centre of the composition suggests the vibrating joy and the songs of life in Nature, vibes of future and development. “The Sun Motif” on top of the sculpture has a distinctive radiance is suggested to glorify uniqueness. The Sun, literally, is the supreme source of both light and lives’ progressions on earth, creating the perennial drama of the Day and the Night, in the centre-stage of Universal Nature.

Fulbright Experience
I was serving as principal, Govt. College of Art, Calcutta and in the year 1997, selected for Fulbright Travel grant only to deliver the lectures on Contemporary Indian art and artists, folk art and temple sculptures. My co-sponserer was my sculpture friend John Antone, who took entire responsibility of staying and hospitality at Virginia. My first lecture took place at British Columbia University, Richmond. It was unforgettable days had passed in USA by delivering lectures in several art colleges, School such as Chicago college of Art Huston San Antonio. Maryland, Cannecticut, washing DC. I also mentioned eminent print maker, Rabart Kirshbaum for living inviting me his institute for interaction with the students and delivering lectures on art. I will never forget Prof. Ruth Boldaun, Rich Mond, Rabart Kirschbaum and ultimately John and all of his friends, Fulbright officials who have whole heartedly supported and encouraged me and vision were grand success.

I wish Fulbright will encourage more amore to young talented artists both the countries through exchange programs. Fulbright Alumni group exhibition, which is to be held in delhi, proves to be brilliant step further.
