CHARCOAL DRAWINGS

Study of French Impressionism

Works here are inspired by Monet, his friends and influencers. They might not be an exact copy of the original paintings.

In my versions, there are more darker skies and landscapes. Some will not have all elements included as in the original.

French Impressionism is characterized by concentration on the immediate visual impression produced by a scene and by

the use of unmixed primary colors and small strokes to simulate actual reflected light. However, I have chosen to work with

BLACK & WHITE as per the theory of physics: where black is the absence of light while white is the combination of all

wavelengths of visible light.


All charcoal drawings in this series are made in landscape, on beige coloured stationery paper at the size of

29.6 x 21.1cm (11.6 x 8.3in). Details of the art are signed and dated in ballpoint behind the paper.

DIGITAL ART

 Series: Shared Consciousness

This series consists of works created by my 'alters' when I experience a dissociative moment which increased during COVID Lockdown. Sometimes these are also caused by my synesthesia that gets triggered when I experience sensory overload.

I do not have a recollection of having made these works until I wake up from my sleep. This process enables me to understand my inner world of trauma while connecting with others who experience a portal like effect in many

of my art works. 

A5 Metal Prints available at INR.800. A4 artist edition prints available at Rs.500.

A4 canvas wrap prints available at INR.2200. A4 canvas wrap print with added sequins are at Rs.4400. All prints are MADE TO ORDER. If you don't find it in my store email directly with your requirements shopvalresh@gmail.com  

For orders outside of India, as per courier regulations prints are sourced at the country of your origin to save on shipping cost from your end.  A Certificate of Authenticity is sent over email directly by the artist. Val Resh is not represented by any person, agent or gallery. Therefore any print found elsewhere will not have a personalized Certificate of Authenticity.

LINE ART WORK ON BLACK PAPER

Hindu - Buddhist Motifs & Symbols

Works here are made during periods of 'Non-Epilepsy Seizures' which are not related to my brain tumour but are triggered by high emotional distress signals. I often feel there is an egg sizzling on my head, while my body remains in a catatonic state.

My eyes tend to stare into the open, as I am not in the state to verbalize myself. However, I am highly conscious of my surrounding, my hearing becomes extra sensitive while my thoughts of the real world are numb. 

Known as 'pseudo-seizures', I call them existential conflicts where my spirit has given up and strayed away from my body to allow my mind to float in another world that is comforting. Although, shamans would call this 'Astral travelling' mine is not a conscious choice and is accompanied by intense unbearable pain.

Through my art I am able to understand and decipher the patterns of conflicts and thoughts I am holding on to which need to let go or worked upon. These drawings provide a visual insight of this journey. 

All drawings in this series are made in on CANSON Black Archival paper, A3 in size - 29.7 x 42cm (11.7 x 16.5in), 150 gsm.
