Pola is a series of Piezo pigment prints on Innova Smooth cotton Paper. When using the print process in the Pola series, I search for the instant lying in between the lines, in between the increments of light, where the subject as well as the medium lose their identity. I intend to disclose the point where the subject blends into the absence of background and the medium of photography merges into painting, which is precisely why this work is included here in the painting category. The point where the subject floats, drifts from its original state while the pigments themselves seem to reach the surface in a pleasurable and rewarding mutiny. Photography often captures an instant or a thing pinned to an instant; here, in the Pola series, the purpose is to capture the instant of transformation.
