Statement

My works explores cultural identity and emphasize personal qualities like love, loss, and inner-strength. Impermanence – a core Indian belief – is reflected in the choice of materials, and practice of including the floor space in my site-specific installations. On the floor, I use ephemeral materials like rice flour, sand, and spices, and the process takes the form of a daily ritual, where art is recreated every day. Here I work with my bare hands and ancient Indian floor design tools. On canvas, I use acrylics and other mixed media, and my tools are those from everyday life, like a comb, ruler, or stick. Recently, I have started experimenting with video as a medium for depicting impermanence.
