Artist Statement 

“Across the stages of migration, I have confronted levels of emotional and social complexities. Being away from home and country has given me a deeper appreciation and respect for Indian culture and encouraged me to celebrate it in its materiality. 

I am learning to embrace and harness the purity within the moments of destruction that come easy while working in clay. The brokenness and nothingness of such fragments form the backdrop of my work as they rescale their presence in relief.

I project my observations gleaned from a fast and changing world to populate the surface of objects, to create an overwhelming visual that captures a system of chaos within and around.
