Drawings from Loss by Sajeev Visweswaran
Sajeev Visweswaran is a visual artist who uses his drawing skill to record the reality around him. His minimal outlines capture the essence and character of everyday objects,intimate portraits of his family,desolate interiors and verdant landscapes. With this ability he gathers memory and loss as a leitmotif, and adds metaphorical touches to his drawings.
Sajeev's drawings are attempts to gather and preserve the missing pieces of personal and political history that are lost or forgotten. He revisits the recent past of Gujarat, to gather memories of people,incidents and other fragments of violence that have been erased to usher in "change". He draws from loss.
The artist was part of a month long residency supported by 1.Shanthiroad Studio.
