In 1980, a young Jaya came to the “walled-in” city of Berlin and immediately felt at home here as if transported into a completely different universe! “I felt excited and encouraged … as soon as I entered the street. Everything had resonance, the ailing and neglected spoke my language – only Berlin smelt like this, looked like this, felt like this.” The 80s came and went… moments plastered into memory… wasting your youth, DAF, Joy Division, The Cure and many others. All of which sought space and expression in Jaya’s life. “Since an early age I have soaked up everything – brought everything into focus with my camera. Initially I worked the photographs and other materials into a collage diary; especially when life was hurting. But at some stage I had to transgress beyond the limits of the book cover, develop something greater.” “The elaborate, surreal collages reflected my feelings: impulsive, intense and imaginative. The photo shoots remained increasing – spontaneous or by appointment. Attractive people, mostly women and the wondrous encounters in the game with the camera became expressions of my mixed media works. The increasing ease of access to digital resources was my revelation: I tattooed the beautiful creatures with my own language, applied shades of desire and sketched injuries on face and body.” Jaya admits that Berlin is no longer what it once was… “For many years I have spent winters in southern countries, most recently, many times on La Gomera, where I can work and exhibit. There as here, I meet people who often become part of my workflow because feelings are universal. Our stories interweave until everything is dissolved or deepens. My intention is not to stimulate thought, but to feel … to feel touched.” For more visit D-Core Design
