Bonjour du Japon,

It's soon three weeks that we are in Japan. So far we spent almost two weeks in Tokyo and visited Hiroshima, Kyoto, Osaka and i am writing this post from Nara, which is my favorite place. Both Jatinder and myself are making research for upcoming projects but also creating pieces from here and lots of things going on regarding our work, which of course i am super happy about. Japan is also the occasion to travel, discover, learn, reunite with some of our dear friends and make a lots of new friends! I'm also happy to realize that the time i spent learning to speak Japanese and read and write are useful, i am motivated to learn even more! To all of you my best wishes from Japan,

In the Studio: Simran

Simran #8, Acrylic on Green Archive Paper, 54 x 74 cm (2013)


Extract of an Interview for Berlin Art Connect

" I'm working on a series called Simran, which are paintings and oil pastels on A2 / A1 paper. Simran stands for „meditation“ in Punjabi, which is Jatinder’s first language, a language i am slowly learning. Creating those one brush stroke painting puts myself in an inner situation similar to meditations, the pieces are done with a quiet and a clear mind. As soon as the brush meets the paper, my mind frees itself from any weight or thought, it only last for a couple of minutes as those works are executed pretty quickly. One doesn't come without the other, those pieces can't be done without a clear mind, yet the clear mind come from within the piece. The process is intuitive and free of reasoning and a decision making process, unlike my canvas on which i think pretty carefully of shapes and mostly colors..."
