Hey. Hi, "I am Will"

Hey. Hi, "I am Will" is not a mere quibble or a homographic play of chanced heteronyms for Priyanka Aelay. Indeed, it is an allegoric statement which underpins the much contested discourse of identities. It can also to be read as an affirmation of the 'self' as a repressed rhetoric and as a discursive quip in terms of rethinking the fundamental system of concepts or the 'kunstwollen' (artistic will). In this process of assertion, she engraves her 'imaginary'/ 'imaginative' imageries onto naked surfaces, at her free will and choice.

Just like the salutation Hey., her representations are audacious yet ambiguous. She invites the viewer into her own web of creative impulses which are sumptuously woven into known and unknown corral forms employing a laborious pen and ink rendering. The known mutate the unknown, imitating and renovating the 'real', as her 'kunstwollen' further gives rise to an innovative visual glossary of the implausible imagery, which is predominant in her fine intricate drawings.

Formalistically, what comes out as the striking impression in Priyanka's body of works is an amazing sense of spatial organization, where the sensitively rendered masses of lines form and deform into impenetrable cross-hatchings often overlapped by a schema of mysterious figural arrangement. The dense pitch black legroom between fairly legible forms and bare negative spaces negotiate and connive for possible denotations creating an evocative composition. What one does not want to miss in her works is the fineness, an obvious delight which she gets in drawing, and her ability to arrive at perfection though she shows a sort of resistance in bringing out any kind realism.

For Priyanka, the source comes from her nostalgic intertextuality and her unexplainable reveries conciliating between physicality and meta-physicality of the forms. Her 'flora and fauna' unfathomably coexist and confer a complex narrative of 'life' and the bewilderment. However, her images do not let her slip into a morbid catharsis. Tiny beasts, titanic tusks and composite cosmic elements all manifest evoking an interesting artistic expression of the young artist. At times, they are compound riddles, which are laid in the form of visuals, which she perhaps anticipates the viewer to decipher. Through a unique blend of real and imaginary, a dialogue of inexorable feelings is translated and transliterated into an individualistic visual idiom that is heightened by symbolic expressions. On the whole, the intricacy and the consistency is what appears to be her 'will to form' in the large scale drawings and are doubtlessly the essential features which characterize Priyanka's amazing art.
