The forms in my work refer to living entities. The cycle and development of plant life, and the belief that biological and botanical entities share fundamental similarities, are two recurring themes in my work.
In this current series, the long-standing motif of mangos converges with newer imagery of planted fields and urban architecture. This gives voice to a third theme, concerned with our ability to live harmoniously with each other and with nature.
The recent work depicts a composition of isolated land masses divided and folded upon themselves like origami. Within these areas, there are groves of mangos, fields, and buildings-represented mainly by windows. The mangos are a nostalgic reference to my childhood in India, the seeded fields to a desire for order and continuum, and the windows to the multiple iterations of humanity.
