In my work, there are three main drivers, layering, transparency and process. The layering provides patterns which work in harmony and sometimes juxtapose each other, thus becoming an intersection between the seen and unseen.
I was born and raised in the USA by parents of Indian origin. In adolescence, I was blessed to have spent my summers in, India which cultivated a deep love of Indian cultures and values. In addition, it made traveling second nature and continues to draw me to other countries and their cultures.
Graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with Degrees in Fine Arts and Architecture and becoming a registered Architect, has only enriched my visual reserve, while giving me the opportunity to explore using multiple subjectivities and a variety of materials. The paintings and drawings have developed into case studies utilizing but not limited to; charcoal, ink, acrylic and printed newspaper in multiple languages, providing unique textures through fonts and text.
As a daily discipline, painting and drawing have become my passion as well as my personal release from the everyday structure. Which also allows a self-conscious approach to the production.
I believe that my process is fluid and free from inhibition, with the ultimate goal of fine tuning the art piece. My work, has been interpreted by some as complex landscapes, to me during it represent my particular state of mind and my physical location. I hope to engage the viewer and create a moment for memory and dialogue.
