Midhun’s work is an attempt to conjoin fragmentary visions of his thoughts that is influenced by the surroundings, time, and space. In the absence of human presence, he is trying to create a space that is filled with various forms like landscape-elements, common mundane objects, primary forests and archetypal images. These images invoke feeling of personal or collective memory; feelings such as insecurity, absence, fear/violence, melancholy, love and loneliness. This emotionality and memory are an inseparable part of our worldly existence.
