K P Reji

It is a delight to find paintings in the common and every day”. A significant facet in K P Reji’s work is the intimate way in which his work integrates aspects of the personal and the social by liberating meanings through disassociating and relocating them from their commonsensical associations. This intimate assemblage of personal and social worlds is one of the most important linguistic devices and tactics that enable his works to cross thresholds of representational politics. His works are neither a eulogy of the sufferings of the working class nor a tale of their heroic deeds; instead they attempt to problematize these representational polemics by presenting them as the ‘being’ in the process of ‘becoming’.
