We Are Hired * – an installation

We are Hired*

“Labour is the prime basic condition for all human existence, and this to such an extent that, in a sense, we have to say that labour created man himself.”
-ENGELS
Conclusions reached by 
BOURGEOIS ECONOMISTS :
Labour – power being a comodity , it is sold and so has a price , so that the value of labour power expressed in terms of money is its price, which assumes the form of wages. But wages appear at first sight not as the price of labour-power , but as the price of labour , an illusion produced by these circumstances : a) the worker’s labour is the means for receiving wages, which is why wages outwardly appear to be the payment for his labour; b) the worker receives his wages after the entire labour process has ended, and not for the necessary labour time; and c) the magnitude of wages is fixed in accordance with the quantity of time worked or the quantity of the product. All of these circumstances creat the impression that the worker sells his labour , and that the whole of that labour is paid for by the capitalist.
THE POT OF GOLD
auther : Plautus
“LAR” : In case you don’t know who I am, let me briefly introduce myself. I am LAR FAMILIARIS, the guardian spirit of this house now for a great many years ; I have looked after it for the present owner , and his father , and his grandfather . It was the grandfather who put into my care , a long time ago, with great secrecy, and with many secred oaths, a large sum of money. He had buried it under the hearth of the central hall, and he charged me on my  honour to keep it safe for him. On his deathbed, miser that he was, he never said a word about the money to his son ; he would rather leave his own son a pauper than let him know about this secret hoard. All he left him was a little bit of land from which he could scrape a living by sweat and toil.     
Down sunk with fright a red 
Round globe, hot burning, deep
Deep down into the Abyss…

About ‘my’ work

Concepts behind the paintings 

Very different styles .. Different personalities 

Artists at Studio Verve



Arpit Biloria:

Volume is something which can be realised even when you “take away” the distracting color. My canvas is a plane where expressions are felt & perceived through the viewers very own personal experiences and my consciousness wanders searching for the dimensions.White, I see, as a ground, where images lie hiding. Black acts as connecting point between dimensions revealing these images.I let myself play with what exists and what does not.

Deviba Wala :

Nature and its forms are the best inspiration for me. I try to zoom in on the finer details, and a form within a form ; concerned with the relationship between the parts and the whole of a composition. i sketch the world as i see it, from a different angle. I like using a single colour each time with its tints and shades. The paintings are generally monochrome. I work with a variety of mediums, which portrays my restless soul . My love for the outdoors is clearly visible in my work.

Pramod Singh :

What I illustrate in my paintings is of less importance than how I try to figure it out from the given surroundings that we live in and the society is the only place or you may say a barrier between thoughts and process. The indifference between nature of a being and manifestation of goodness is a point where the whole society is standing on a rock. The unshakable, well knitted, carefully designed slap on our cheeks. Ah…. What a slap! …. F*** them all, all those gaps we have between innocence and mastery. For me, my work is nothing but a cross section of these two worlds.
Until you throw yourself out on the barren land, you can’t imagine what hunger means. And that hunger is the origin of every calculation I scribble on my canvas.
