Flower vase fantasy (poopathra swapnam) is a series of paintings in mixed medium. Certain uncertainties either personal or social, we have to face in life, lead me to do these works. Nature shrinked into a flower vase and that itself may be thrown out by man , the aftermath of which will be the total destruction.

The second phase of "the expressions in black and white" mainly in abstract format is with printing ink on paper. "The mob", "The flower vase fantasy", "The nightmare", The reminiscence" etc.. are some of the paintings. These works are the visualization of the inner current of thought.

From 2005 onwards I created a different method to sketch and draw. Using a fountain pen with brown ink, and working with the tip and the round side of the nib for drawing and shading, enabled unexpected results. And at present adding "nobody's language"the drawings has got a new visual experience. Nobody's language is a visual language and can speak and write only by me which I know is absurd. And hence the beauty of absurdity.

This visual I captured on a rainy evening while I was sitting on a bench at Kasaragod Railway station. The sight of showering rain forced me to use my pen in sepia. Using the pen in an unconventional method the tree came into being. ; and using the alphabets of nobody's language the showering rain began to pour in. thus "kasarkottee jathi maram" happened. Other drawings in this series , most of them drawn during my daily journey by the train from Tellicherry to Kasaragod are about the vast tobacco fields in Kanhangad.
People, especially artists are serious about creative art. But I don' think like that. I like innovative ideas be presented, either through a simple picture or a creative painting. It may or may not contain creative effort. This thought lead me to do something simple and innovative. My memories clicked at the coloured wooden pieces of deities of Bhuvaneswar in Orissa, the "nokkukuthi" of north Malabar, the Masks of Theyyam etc. which are very simple and colourful. Using enamel paint on Aluminium sheets, I created some fifty pieces within two days. here are some pieces:

I happened to attend the international drama festival at Thrissur conducted by Kerala sangeetha nataka akademi in 2003 which deeply impressed me. After that in an Art camp conducted by Pondichery Government at Mahe, I created one painting. See the painting - THE ACTRESS which reveals the influence of the Drama festival. The other one is THE ARENA.
