There is nothing so fascinating and intriguing as that of the human figure. The spirit associated with it generates a web of complex and inter-connected emotions, subtle impulses both physical and psychic which constitute the essence of humanity, transcending all barriers such as culture, religion, ethnicity as well as geographical frontiers.

It is these impulses that manifest themselves in terms of insightful textures, myriad shades of colour and defining brush strokes in the distinctive creations of Rubert Soysa. A defining characteristic of his painting is the depth of insights imbedded in the texture and the layers of diverse meanings underneath it.
