This is a mixed media work, incorporating Styrofoam, which has no exposed surface but entirely wrapped in silk fabric. It was a piece done during the pandemic, reminiscing the lonely lives in my parental hometown in India. The center insert is handwoven in cotton.

I believe a work of art bears the stamp of individuality and the national bearing of its creator when it springs from inner self. Being from India, a country with an extremely rich heritage of Art and Culture, I have always had a deep-rooted attachment to traditional art forms of India and owe some of my stylization to the captivating traditional patterns and the rich array of colors. Adapting to Western Styles and techniques, combining them with my lifelong fascination for ethnic arts around the world, have all been a melting pot for me to create a multicultural ‘canvas’. In my everyday life, my escape, my retreat, is my creative power of Art. My work is indigenous to my inner self, and is a place of solitude, passion and contemplation for me. The subject matter of my work is drawn from my own life experiences, travels, thoughts and surroundings. My art is like a journey for me through the passage of time-honored techniques, traditions and influences in an endeavor to produce art for everyone. The final offering is the culmination of a series of wordless conversations between me and my artwork.More About Artist
