Time-based meditative processes such as repetitive patterning and marking, weaving and stitching inform my art. Inspired by process, I used various tools sourced from everyday life to create my paintings as well as my installations and photographs. Bright and vibrant colors from my East Indian roots and heritage inspired by traditional Sari’s are transformed into new constructions used as source material for my photographs and as material for my installations. Examining ancient cultures with a focus on traditional notions of women’s work, my work is about making connections with those practices stemming background and vast travels within our contemporary landscape through abstraction.
I plan to exhibit my most recent version of Garland Installation-Upside Down Rainbow, or a slight variant of the same- a site specific Installation that works best with the chosen space.
