Amit Ambalal began his adult life dutifully following his family into business. After many years, inspired by his desire to paint, he sold the family business and became an artist. Inspired by all forms of creativity and with a great sense of humour he has developed his own inimitable response to the world around him. His Swayambhu was a piece of stone that self-manifested itself to him as a Yogi that Amitbhai then revealed through painting the form.
For this show he is the Sakshi to the process of ROOPANTAR-transformation.
In this work Amitbhai is recalling the memory of seeing monkeys playing on the backs of turtles in the Yamuna at Mathura. On a recent visit he was sad to see that there were no more turtles due to the increased polution of the river. Using a mix of papier mache and glue around a metal frame he has recreated the moment of playful contact between the monkey and the turtle.
