Jagath’s art practice encompasses paintings, drawing, collage and installation. What characterises his entire body of work is the belief that art making is a vital expression which is valuable and necessary to us as the viewer and he practitioner in how we digest the wold around us. In Jagath’s case this has meant that aspects of his edge. His strategic use of the political belies much that is persona. This latest group of work runs on the heels of his private stuff’ series and continues to investigate the private and personal looking inward, at this moment of his physical, psychological and philosophical self, theses paintings illuminate fragments and fractures of this journey.
