The structure in this work resembles the form of an insect, once inspected closely, with a second, smaller insect perched on top of it. These are present in the lower half of the canvas. Overlapping the two halves of the work, is a round form, joined by two tiny hinges with the insect below.
Lost by Yati Jaiswal
Born in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh in 1977, Yati Jaiswal received his education mostly in Delhi. He finished his Post Graduate Diploma In Human Rights from Jamia Millia Islamia University, Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) from College of Art, and Master of Visual Art (Painting) from Lalit Kala Sansthan, Dr.B.R. Ambedkar University, Agra. He continues to live and work from Delhi. His practice digs deep into personal experiences, shared realities, popular events or even imagined worlds. The depictions follow the style of surrealism, bringing to life a parallel universe. He festoons this world with metaphors, epitomising his aspirations and disappointments. He seeks in this virtual world, what could not be accomplished in the real one.
