“ I CREATE A CONCEPT FOR INDIAN POST SERVICE ”
|" 14-2-2004 " Installation Presentation on Concept of INDIAN Post Service .|
Before 2005 year, I were not connected with this advance online networking system. I did not knew about E mail or Gmail. So my communication was running by INDIAN POST SERVICE . I were sending mail in hard copy to my art family . As a Indian I am using INDIAN post Service , some time they can’t help to me then I am use other way for hard copy post to my art family.
1999 to till 2004 I were sending continue letters to my friends by INDIAN post Service . I have a big letters data in my hard copy data store . that time I were used postcard and simple envelope of INDIAN post . when I were buy the stamp for post that stamp design was attracted to me , and I were thinking much more design in format of INDIAN POST STAMP , in letter of my friends I were draw some stamp design just for art fun.
That Art Fun were got a real art work form from me in year 2004 . it was year of my masters at Rajasthan School of Art . There I were created lots of concepts for my art work presentation and in that concept design I were used my past communication way INDIAN POST SERVICE .
I am remembering , in my class of masters, my classmate was planning for valentine day and I saw someone creating painting or someone were busy in card design so there I told to them why you are not use our simple INDIAN post Service and that’s Envelope post for your feeling share work with close friends.
They were not noticed my advice but by that simple advice I got a concept for my art work “14-2-2004” it is a title of my art work . I were wrote some notes for my work of art because this art concept was very big challenged for me , I were thought very big and tuf exercise , but I did that exercise by my art passion. In that concept I were planed some stamps with free of cost , because I thought all world is celebrate a one day for love and peace they are saying to that day valentine day . so its our duty as a nation person we give some freedom for express to true feeling with others for love and peace by simple way.
I were created three type letter design of INDIAN POST SERVICE , one was post card ,second was envelope of INDIAN POST and third was International post Letter ( ANTARDESHIY PTRA ) of INDIAN POST SERVICE.
About date of 14-2-2004 , I were designed a small maket of INDIAN POST SHEEL , with this text image message “ love want simplicity and true feeling by easy way or our INDIAN POST SERVICE can provide it for our NATION people from INDIAN POST SERVICE.
After that complete concept design with that’s small maket I were shared that art concept with my art Teacher Dr. Vidhya Sagar Upadhyay Sir , he was visited that and asked to me. are you design it ? I were reply to him yes sir , then he asked to me how to you will created ? then I said my full concept and that’s final stage , I told him I will create this concept in big size and INDIAN POST SHEEL I will create in sculpture form , because I want to learn the academic sculpture process by this art work .
My teacher was very critical for me and I were knowing he is taking my test , he told me in joke style , why you are not create in wood a carpenter can create for you in short time , then I told to him sir I want to learn fiber casting work from myself so I will create it by me after your permission . finally I were got permission from my teacher .and then I were started collection of art medium .
First I were buy three plywood sheet and some handmade sheets I were painted color on that ply board like post card or international post letter. After painting I were draw same image or text on that big Post card or envelope like original post card or envelope .after painting and drawing that was looking like a real post card and international post letter.
On handmade paper sheet I were painted some images and I did cut to that paper sheet in form of INDIAN POST STAMP . on space of STAMP COST I were wrote word FREE. When all Stamp got final cutting then i were pasted that paper STAMP copy on big size post card or on envelope . after final touch I were wrote some calligraphy type lines that was not word that was a symbol of love and peace language , when my teacher saw that symbolic calligraphy type lines then he asked to me why you are not write real words ? then I reply to him sir , I am thinking, love and relation feeling is very important for two person because they are communicate by word his or her deep feeling. but when other read to that words then they can joke on that words . here you feel this letter I wrote for you because my deep feeling and respect for you , and I know you can understand very well because you are blessing on me but others are not know our true art relation so they can joke on it . so I have not used real words I used indication of feelings by this calligraphy style lines .My teacher were listening to me and then gave me a simple smile , I can’t forget that movement of my art journey. Ha
But Post card , envelope and international post letter was not complete art work , that was half creation of my concept of INDIAN POST SERVICE. After painting work I were went in sculpture department there I were draw very first armature of INDIAN POST SHEEL . when drawing was completed then I were collected some damaged furniture and created a strong armature for sculpture , that was December moth and I were created first stage of POST SHEEL in clay , that POST SHEEL was in 4.5 fit Height . so three days I were busy in clay work in cold environment . after 10 days I were got a real shape of INDAN POST SHEEL in clay , that was a small success of my Sculpture sound . there my all Sculpture department teachers were not happy to my sculpture work but I were lived busy there as a silent artist. because I were knew I will create a sculpture by me in this department , I were confident because I have been lots of exercise and planning about that sculpture before work and my collage vice principal late shree Somhendra Sharma Ji was gave me some guide line for that art work . so I were very confident because he was a strong sculptor of Rajasthan.
After clay sculpture I were taken a mold by plaster in that molding work our collage staff helper Mr. Om Prakash Minaa ji was helped me then in a one day I could taken a very perfect mold in plaster. I were leaved that mold in sun light for dray and in that time gape I thing three or four days , I were searched medium of fiber casting and that’s technically casting process . I did buy raggine ,hardnar , fiber mate , marble dust and some more comical for fiber medium . on day15th , I were stared fiber casting by help of Mr. Om Prakash Meena ji . on day 20th , I were give final touch to that fiber sculpture and that day my all sculpture department and that’s teacher were looking me and my sculpture of fiber casting ..it was my second success .
After creation of Sculpture in 20th days I were came back in my painting department and there I were painted to that INDIAN POST SHEEL sculpture in real look impression . I were pasted some text cut on bottom side of that POST SHEEL . over all in 35 days I were completed to concept of INDIAN POST SERVICE in a big art work form , first I were shared that art work display with my art teacher , he said ok , done. Then I were exhibited that art concept presentation in my final display of First year masters and third I were displayed it in art fair of Rajasthan Lalit Kala Academy Jaipur , there STET BANK OF BIKANER AND JAIPUR was gave me award for that art concept presentation . my concept had completed a stage of art work creation to award . but that’s story was not end on that point .
