Just as our own body is a house for our soul/spirit with its structure of bones & its wiring & plumbing- openings leading in & openings leading out, in the same way is a building! Houses & buildings have always fascinated me as much my own body has. This is the reason why I have begun to paint them. They have a soul, too. They need as much care as our own body. I call it denting & painting, as car workshops do. Both, bodies & buildings, require regular maintenance & both are integral to life. You cannot live but inside your body & you cannot live without a roof over your head.
As I grow older, the importance of my body & my house being finely tuned has become of paramount importance. Earlier, they were taken so much for granted. You will see many more houses & a little girl in my artwork in the future. You will see me mostly as a house! One of my favourite pieces was done in 2016 & I’ve always wanted to go back to that style. I think the time has come. This was an experimental piece but was much lauded & was sold to someone very special. It’s housed in Goa. I AM THE UNIVERSE. Esmond Jules Sanchis, I hope this answers your question! You wanted the story of the tree house. No house is complete without some trees around it. I love trees. I love houses. Both are living things, as far as I’m concerned. I hope this explanation, though just scratching the surface of my philosophy, is enough for the time being!
