These objects add aesthetic by taking it away. They simply are what they are: a celebration of a style that lives at peace with its own little imperfections. Some are functional, they are hand made and are built to be used. Some incarnate the dysfunctionality intrinsic to society by hinting at the fragility of the human condition in a more general sense.
“I create these small sculptures from my observation of the common man and his dilemmas. Claymen figures come in peace and maintain silence. Although going through their own existential crises at all times they are mere spectators or observers to the notion that “man is losing his humanity and becoming a thing amongst the things he produces.” - Aman Khanna
