Mahendra Singh Solanki chooses to express through decayed nature. He sees beauty, forms, shapes and above all reflections of his thoughts in the fallen leaves, withered flowers, broken barks and mossy hays. The emerging texture, the undefined shades which evolve from the cycle of nature and misses the untrained eye, has aught the fancy of an artist born in Dewas.
"Art" says Mahendra is not creating from already beautiful but lies in composing it through missed beauty. The body language of the characters depicted in the collage speaks of dexterity with which the dried leaves and petals collected over a period of time are used without any cutting or chopping. His palette is the whole earth where he searches for colour and texture. The feeling that emerges in the mind of the viewer could not have been stimulated or replicated by any other medium, feels the artist.
