Kushag is a multi-disciplinary artist working with photo montage, digital and moving image - alongside experiments with recycled scrap materials and chemical alterations. His practise explores fluid, free-association processes, where one thing evolves into another without separation, all co-existing simultaneously. Whether that be objects, emotions, memories, time, desires or identities, they all merge into a beautiful and chaotic cacophony that perpetually recreates itself into something else. Never sitting still, always in motion. His art expresses this ideology with a spontaneous mesh of random starting points and streams of consciousness, that pull the works to their own intimate conclusions in a frenzy of visual and symbolic ideas.

I love those moments when finding an object at a scrap merchant’s yard and knowing exactly where it belongs…as was the case for this piece. A found broken frame whilst travelling in Mumbai to fit an already created playful image of a Hindu deity…the frame, which would have originally been used for Islamic calligraphy art, repurposed…perfect harmony with a little hidden humour.
