Sumitava Maity profile
I devote my life into my art works and new ideas which help to understand the value of natural surroundings, the soft and true relation between two living creatures. My work is about discovering the inner nature of mind, and the way a human being communicates with nature. Every proportion of nature is perfect and all living creature are satisfied with this system except human being – they survive with their human intellect and this is the first step to disobeying the system of nature, which in turn affects our inner state of mind, in addition to this, it creates an alternate reality which requires more artificial system, its little harmful initially, but they can be like small cracks that weaken the overall structure over time. I always capture the value of someone’s thought which affects other thought process in positive direction. And also, I try to find the negative space of human activities which are affecting the balance of natural world. I am constantly trying to discover the reason which has led to the increased distance between human and nature. And I think this increased distance is the primary reason for human psychological and mental isolation with nature. My choice of employing simple forms in nature is therefore deliberate and it conveys a simple and direct message listen to nature, orchestrate with its very system and involve our inner nature of mind for this is perhaps our only way left for survival.
