ARTIST STATEMENT: The focus of my work to date is the point where classic Indian imagery intersects with a minimalist aesthetic. Constantly, I am collecting and archiving intellectual mental images of the past and now, from landscapes, miniature portraiture, folk traditions and classic Indian cinema, etc. I use these vestiges from my culturally-rich past as a platform for evoking a contemporary dialogue that reinterprets and reinvents Indian creative heritage. The techniques I apply are traditional, a mixture of hand made stencils, silk-screen, wood, collage, painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installation etc. At the heart of my artistic research has been a blend of India's cultural past with its present. I think of my art as alternating notions of time and space by pairing archaic refinement with modern austerity.
