Abhishek Sharma Vana collection – represented the fleeting shadows, supple vies dangling from branches,connecting bunches of foliage, life seeping through them, flowing like nectar in the body of the living,mystical being of the forest as random sounds of fluttering leaves and chirping of birds emerge fromthe dense, silent canopies. In the Vana, the theatre of the unsaid and the undefined, elements take asombre form, appear ephemerally and vanish again. It is a world alive and entwined, where lines and shadows mingle, shapes dissolve and tones coalesce, it is never fully revealed and never totally still. In it, all that can be seen and
expressed is not the whole, it holds in its womb a secret, the story of life and it’s fruition. Vana, the mystic being of the forest, an unbridled existence, a flowering of life.
