Drawing life from clay

Made over this semester as part of my class projects.

I remember maybe 6 months ago starting school, being bewildered by  beautiful clay sculptures our seniors made( I still am). Fast forward to now- I LOVE SCULPTURE!

 

because…it is so complete, even though all art is incomplete.Making a sculpture, all noise quiets down. With each detail carved out, it becomes more and more wonderful to observe. I love it because a sculpture transcends the material it embodies. Of course it is but a symbol, yet it is so powerful it makes the blood cold in my veins ( that too symbolically i think:D. yes. it is beautiful.

So… I have a wierd love/hate relationship with photography. I especially HATE taking photos when I have to take photos ( okay, who doesn’t?!). Well anyway, this morning I’m walking around Patan Durbar square with my camera and I see a whole public bus-ish crowd of pigeons, a shot-type old lady selling stuff , et cetera.  I click a litle this and a little that but I’m bored as HELL.

Suddenly! A vision on my right! ‘History of Studio Photography in Nepal’  Ongoing Exhibition in Patan Museum.

Okay aaaannyways, I went in.  I was looking at this large portrait of two women looking somewhere beyond the frame when I felt a longing to be there, in that space between the actual setting of the photograph and the present- I think it is in the aura lent by the lens of a camera, transcending the image from that of two posing people to something more. I don’t know…Well then I felt like all these images are not really of those people from a certain time ago- instead just a different world created by the camera.I felt like I wanted to be with them, these characters of a photographic world.
