The origin of the universe, the moment of the big bang, the formation of life, the transition from its origin to reality, is what Ravi Mandlik tries to showcase through his paintings. He captures a series of moments, intending on showcasing the dynamics of the formation of nature itself. Nature, forms a strong inspiration, making him explore his existence. He paints the spirit, trying to create simulations of it, which then becomes a reality in and of itself. The spirit is formless as it is contantly in motion. This perpetual state of motion arrives at a frozen conclusion, immortalised through his work. The search is what propels the spirit to move forward and make its existence relevant.
