The matrix from which forms take shape
(rising from the collective unconscious through the
artist's perception of reality) fascinates Shilker.The
mystery of the precise point at which these images emerge
is not a puzzle to be solved ,but an enigma to be enjoyed.
The apparent randomness of Shilker's symbols evoke
the process by which chaos resolves into order,but the
realm in which this takes place is one of poetry.
Silker's canvases fix the moment before the
images ,symbols and forms that describe his world move
together in a predictable manner or pattern or order;a
magical moment pregnant with possibilities.
An unrestricted palette gives his work jewel -like
luminosity due to the intensity of his colours and the
delicate yet tensile ordering of his painterly language.
Shilker's vocabulary of symbols,gestural scrawls,linear
marks,signs and symbols resist literal interpretation.This
inexhaustible language makes each of his works equal
unto themselves as well as articulating his belief in
the transformative power possessed by all things.
