Wall Hangings

“Empathically explores the issue of feminine space as a territory shifting between the continuously assailed social space and the domestic patriarchal one.”

Dr. Jyothindra Jain, 
Indian Art and Culture Historian, New Delhi

 

Drawings

This series of drawings are inspired by the Indian concept of shringana. The drawings deal with women’s sensuality and sexual desires. 

All my ink drawings are based on motifs from Indian miniatures, at times combined with old Indian love poetry. I developed my own style or “handwriting” in an unknown language by creating patterns that are repeated in different ways.
