Toe to Toe

Khalil Chishtee's avatar Khalil Chishtee

Formally, when it comes to human figure I am deeply fascinated by the postures it create; For some dance is considers as poetry of limbs but for me every frozen moment of it is full of beauty, grace and all kind of appeals . For few athletic body moves rhythmically in the space, but to me each type of figure finds its perfect and artistic way to express itself through postures and other gestures. To see all of that, one has to ignore all details, especially those details that are full of some other associations and references. Conceptually I am very much interested in finding the strongest moment in between extremes. I find all of these moments most exciting and shocking at times. In that very moment one finds nothing else but the doubts; and doubt helps one to question all of our beliefs and all other convictions. Currently I am working on the idea of reflections in a very literal way. Instead of heads there is another figure attached upside down.
