A Show Of Strength
I often work with colourful paper patches – and these are an integral part of this handmade collage series. I feel a lot can be expressed through paper. Each layer adds meaning to the final narrative – whether it is through the texture, hue or the way the paper is torn.
I believe that a lot of things that cannot be expressed in words can easily be communicated visually. These visuals then become the reference point for a certain emotion. Through this body of work, I have tried to throw light on how women find the strength to survive in a patriarchal society.
Since I am self-taught, no formal instruction has defined my creative process. The artistic process engrosses me. Collages are fun to make and I lead by instinct. I draw inspiration from my own experiences, as well as from nature, the fortitude of women and the complexities of human emotions.
