I should begin by saying that I am a painter and talking about war or images of war is something that I have been exploring for a long time, specifically images coming out from what has been labeled as terrorism. Muslim fundamentalism is a subject which has become very intersting for me, coming from India and living and working in Europe. I have been collecting images now for the last five years from the media which are basically reports of what we call terror of fundamentalism, it's an expanding database of images and what I have been trying to do with these images is to find a way of going beyond the narrative of these images, to find a way to use this lense of looking at, let's say the landscape of people and extending this vision into another narrative.
