My paintings address concepts of gender and form a critical view of the surrounding social, political and cultural issues. My recent work revolves around the day-to-day life of South Asian women and explores the heavy burden of being a woman in a patriarchal world. My work consists of miniature narratives and still life paintings that aim to capture domestic scenes in South Asia. I record the thoughts and beliefs of the people of a less progressive India and try to create parallels for a more modern India tomorrow. I collect references from the Indian miniature style of painting and vintage photographs of my family. I mostly work with oil paints and frequently incorporate layered patterns. My oil paintings honor the history of Indian miniature painting, while telling the story of my generation through political examinations of contemporary Indian society. I also work with watercolor to depict an array of female emotive powers, divinely embodied, and in the medium of printmaking to bring unrepresented goddesses to life.
