Most of the darkness is left behind and starts moving on the side. It is the ever on-going play on this world’s stage between darkness and light. Scripture, Literature, Fine Arts, are all but sources of light that darkness tries to overpower when the human understanding is weakened in time. But, has any power ever overcome light? Has any cloud ever hidden the sky? When tabula rasa is reached only the inner colours shine.
From the series titled, “Tabula Rasa…for a new beginning”!
Tabula Rasa in Latin means a clear slate, and originates from the Roman tabula or wax tablet used for notes, which was blanked by heating the wax and then smoothening it, to give a tabula rasa. In Psychology, it relates to the theory that at birth the (human) mind is a “blank slate” without rules for processing data, and that data is added and rules for processing are formed solely by one’s sensory experiences. And so in order to reach for his goals and desires, despite the setbacks that one has faced, one needs to clear his mind to reach a tabula rasa and start afresh. In this series, the artist has exhibited pictures those describe the meaning of ‘Tabula Rasa’, ‘before it is reached’ and ‘after it is reached’ in the human mind.
