Statement

The Great Outdoors

 

Planned urbanization and mechanization remain crucial for human progress, and yet these advancements lead to a gradual loss of control. The more man craves technological progress with all its modern day comforts, the more alienated he becomes from his roots, over ourselves and our environment. In turn, we instinctively urge for the outdoors. Part of us yearns to connect with nature and feel the rejuvenating effect it has on our psyche. Unlike the constant obligations that demand something of us, the great outdoors gives something to us- a sense of coming home, of regaining our lost innocence, of finding peace at last.

 

My paintings are varying angles of a single prism. At first glance, you see a humored portrayal of a quaint scene; upon further examination, an integrated, multi-layered expression reveals itself. One can grasp the complexity and nuance of my vision only after abandoning our typical notions and then keenly observing the relationships and components at play. The projected images serve as a veneer, behind which an infinite number of experiences and interpretations are possible. Each painting has the potential for several meanings; one revealed by the presence of colours juxtaposed carefully to form a harmonious whole, one revealed by the intricate patterns and details, and one revealed by the underlying content and narration. Thus, what appears to be a choice of method (a technique involving four layers of colour) proves to be the seeds, sun, and water of a highly complex organism of construction.

 

The paintings intend to make you feel that you are watching a snapshot of life at maximum authenticity- exuberant and packed with bursting energy. There is one optical illusion born of another. Is the focus the scene at hand, the shapes and details that surround the people, both, or something else entirely? I seek to challenge the viewer to modify the typical way of reading conventional signs and patterns.

 

The conversation I hope to create in my work is a certain truth of life and on a deeper level, a well thought philosophy. I construct fantastic versions of accessible scenes, both rural and urban utopias. Individuals may interpret my paintings in vastly disparate ways and each view will be equally logical and plausible, thought provoking and intriguing. A picture of the moment is built in which whole relationships are made visible. My work is all about time. And through my paintings, time is movement stilled.

 

Society continues to forge ahead in scientific advancement, seeming to accelerate the divide in our connection to nature. And yet, we find ways to bring the outside back into our lives, at times subconsciously, at times with great perspective and intention. Ultimately, the goal and thus the journey remains the challenge to balance the polarity of the worlds in which we reside.

Indian, b. 1942

The Singh Twins

The Singh Twins

Biography

In the Spotlight: The Singh Twins

The Singh Twins are contemporary British artists of international standing whose award winning paintings have been acknowledged as constituting a unique genre in British Art and for initiating a new movement in the revival of the Indian miniature tradition within modern art practice. Describing their work as ?Past ? Modern? (as opposed to Post Modern), their work engages with important areas of critical debate - challenging existing stereotypes and redefining generally accepted, narrow perceptions of heritage and identity in art and society. Combining elements from western and eastern aesthetics they assert the value of traditional and non European art forms to the continuing development of contemporary art practice - exploring cultural, social and political issues of global significance within a highly decorative, often witty and symbolic style which has universal appeal and transcends cultural barriers.

Their contribution to the arts on an international platform was officially recognized by their home city in UK, when they were made Honorary Citizens of Liverpool in 2009. Their work also received formal recognition at the highest level of the British establishment in 2011, when they were each awarded an MBE in the Queen?s Birthday Honours List, for services to the Indian miniature tradition of painting within contemporary art.

With paintings in private and public collections worldwide from the Royal Ontario Museum Toronto to The London Museum, the Twins continue to be invited to speak at institutions such as:

Tate Gallery, London
The Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada
The National Gallery of Modern Art Delhi and Mumbai
The Asian Art Museum, San Francisco and
The Library of Congress, Washington

Exhibitions of paintings from the significant body of work which they have created since 1987, have been hosted by Museums and Galleries around the world, including:

The National Gallery, London
The National Portrait Gallery, London
The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
The Smithsonian Institution, Washington
The Royal Museums, Edinburgh
The Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow
Mc Master Gallery, Hamilton Canada
and
The National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai and New Delhi where, at that time, they became the only British artists besides Henry Moore, to have been offered a solo show at this, India?s foremost venue for Contemporary Art.

For over more than two decades the Twins? work has received significant interest from academics, art students and University research scholars alike and is now incorporated into the formal Education system of Britain as elsewhere.

Their contribution to the field of arts has achieved wide media attention - featuring in numerous art magazines, journals and newspapers across the globe. Television and Radio coverage includes house guest appearances on Bloomberg TV?s ?Style?, Carlton TV?s ?Open House with Gloria Hunifford? and CBC?s ?Here and Now; and interviews for BBCWomen?s Hour, Mid Week, Front Row and Belief. In 1998 a film titled, ?Singh Out Sisters? which followed their first exhibition in Germany was screened by Granada Television as part of a series of programs profiling the creative talent of North West England and in 2001 an Arts Council Funded documentary on their work by Independent film maker Suman Bhuchar, titled, ?Alone Together? received 'The Best Film on Art' prize at the Asolo International Film Festival.

That same year the Twins were short-listed for the Asian Women of Achievement Awards (in the category of Arts & Culture) and in 2002 were appointed official Artists in Residence to the UK Manchester Commonwealth Games.

Amongst the main stream publications profiling their work are such titles as the Penguin History of Scotland; The Oxford History of Art:Portraiture; The National Portrait Gallery?s The Portraiture Now; Marg Publication?s New Insights into Sikh Art and The Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History.

A New Direction
Since 2006 The Singh Twins have been developing their creativity through the medium of film. Their first production titled, ?Nineteen Eighty-Four and the Via Dolorosa Project?, being a short documentary about one of their most famous works depicting the Storming of the Golden Temple in 1984 and their latest film, titled ?The Making of Liverpool ? being an animated history of Liverpool.

Both films received the Creative Media Award at the Hollywood Sikhs Lens Film and Arts Festival.

Other Interests
Although more widely known for their paintings, The Singh Twins are also published writers and authors. Publications include a children?s poetry book titled, ?Bindhu?s Weddings? inspired by their paintings of British Asian life and an art history book titled, ?Images of Freedom? which draws on a selection of posters from the personal archive of popular and mass produced imagery pertaining to India which the Twins began collecting during their time as postgraduate students in 1990.

Fine Art Books
