In the painting "A4rian time drifts" the term A4rian has been made up by the artist as a "homage" to the A-4 paper that has become synonymous with documentation, bureaucracy where reams of paper that are generated in order to give evidence to our existence, whether it is attaining a new passport, or opening a bank account etc. Harsha made it a point to stand in snaking queues that is normality to Indians where we spend hours patiently for any given purpose! When the artist stood in the one for his Aadhar Card (unique identification card), during demonetisation to get some cash from ATM and for driving licence… he became an even more vigilant observer of people's actions while they waited. The dystopian reality of patience, diligence in order that one's identity is "secured" as versus the paradox of that reality. The people in the queue are strange - a donkey's head on human body, or a three-headed woman's hand pushing deep into the skin of a mushroom-headed person! In this work, the artist talks about his "automatic flow of drawing" - "there was no plan, no intent of making this image - it simply happened" according to him. The painting is divided by a snaking blue river-like line - but that line is in fact riddled with A-4 paper, like a drifted curve - a curve that is created when water pushes back what it brings ashore on beaches - thus the title of the work. Harsha says he is neither spiritual nor political; how then does one account for how his brush moves or how the concerns of identity that is the looming question before us within our own context of the nation? It is interesting that an artist who veers consciously away from politics is actually addressing the very questions that hang like swords over our heads.
