Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This abstract mixed media work on paper was inspired by the Ganesh festival. Lord Ganesh, the elephant headed god, features strongly for Indians but not exclusively, it is considered auspicious, bringing good luck while it removes obstacles. This Ganesh is playful, joyful with a twinkle in his eye!
I am of Indian origin and it is rare for me to depict traditional Indian themes, perhaps that is why it was abstracted subconsciously.

I have used acrylic, graphite, charcoal and collage on paper. As I was creating it, there was a real playful element which was coming through me, as if Ganesh was dancing on to the paper, quite an extraordinary feeling and brought me much joy creating it! I hope it will bring joy into your home!

The artwork is unframed, and I would recommend a float mount.

Artist Profile

Born: 1955

Hometown: London

Based in: London

Originally from India, brought up in London, lived in Paris, Singapore, Provence, Goa and now back in London. I have worked in a variety of industries all related to the arts and aesthetics and wellbeing.
I put my life experiences into the expressions of my art. I am a spiritual person by nature where introspection, meditation and healing play important roles.
My work is intuitive in nature where my inner world becomes my outer expression. Being a therapist and an artist, the two come together, converge, sometimes collide. While some work has an expansive exploration, with a series entitled ‘Cosmic Egg’, incorporating text, another reflects on an existential question, Who am I? In all cases the works are reflections of my inner canvas presenting a deeply personal series of works.
I use a variety of techniques including printmaking, collage, mark-making and Asian calligraphy inspired techniques, with inks, acrylic paints, charcoal, graphite and pastels on paper. I have also created small format artist books. My works are abstract and express reflections, observations and encounters, such a recent series on Rape in India entitled ‘Shakti Rising’. My colour palette sometimes is restricted emphasising the nature of the subject, red, black and white. Texture also plays an important role for me, as I am inspired by nature - weathered wood, tree bark, pebbles but also my travels to Japan and India.
My inner questioning led me to explore ‘Who am I ?’ which resulted in a series of A1 size prints in black and white depicting the ‘masks we wear’ printed on acetate but also on fabric which i will expand into surface design.
Whatever I make I feel strongly about. My series on rape was a gut-wrenching experience.
I have been influenced by the works of Joseph Cornell, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger and Julie Mehrutu. And I resonate with the words of Picasso. ‘Painting is a blind man’s profession, he paints not what he sees but he feels’.
I meditate, listen, feel and then create.
