Parul Thacker’s multi-media installations play with the idea of surface and depth creating a magical tension between material and form. Sometimes the forms rise in spectral, sinuous shapes that are reminiscent of nature’s forces: the curling of waves, the spinning of a tornado. Sometimes they are like vast lunar landscapes. The artist uses light much like a draughtsman uses a pen. It defines and articulates her vision and through its manipulation she explores the universe both within and without.

The crystal – an absolute system of linkage – is key to Parul’s compositions. Re-defining techniques from her study of the art of embroidery, weaving and stitching, she structures myriad materials – nylon monofilaments, acrylic tubes, translucent gels and pigments – that hold crystals at their core. Her juxtapositions probe the visible and invisible systems of organic patterns and our material environment; they portray the beauty of coincidental symmetry of nature and technology; and they comment on the filigree compounds of society and subject in our day-to-day world.
