About The Artist

I've been teaching art and working as a sculptor for about ten years. I enjoy teaching as much as I enjoy creating.

 

My zeal for work has taken me to several lovely destinations such as Germany, Australia, Lithuania, Russia, Poland, and a few others, for symposiums and residencies that have broadened my perspective and cultivated my artistic practice.

 

I have received the very prestigious Jyotsna Bhatt Ceramics award for 2022 for which am currently working on my new series “ The costume party” as a part of my project.

 

In April 2022, I completed a month-long residency in the Keramik Kunstlerhaus in Neumünster, Germany, where I conceived the series, "Costume Party."

 

I'm ecstatic that one of my sculptures was accepted into the Latvia Ceramics Biennale by the Mark Rothko Museum in Latvia and now it is in the permanent collection.

 

As a National Research Scholar, I recently turned in my study on paper clay ceramics. I'm now researching several methods of clay printing and surface decoration as a Lalit Kala National Research scholar for 2021-22.

 

I'm bothered by the global patriarchal pressures that all genders are subject to. Since I think that art has the potential to be a powerful social instrument, my work satirizes the pervasive patriarchy and the strain it puts on people of all genders.

7 Fun Facts about me:

Artist Statement

I am a storyteller. My works are a combination of form and narration. Inspiration for my sculptures/Installation stems from my longstanding curiosity of human behaviour, my observation of daily life and the funny ways of society.

There has been a strong influence of Pop art and Picasso’s work on my art practice; Hence some of their art practice streaks might be visible in mine too.

I often use ceramic as a medium because it allows me to sculpt, draw and paint all in one medium. 

I like to maintain a balance between form and concept. I aim at creating a worldly upheaval by generating a challenging language to inquiring minds with curiosity and freedom of perception.
