Artist statement and explanation of bodies of work
I started my work as an artist since early nineties. I specialized in making sculptures and also creating sociopolitical installations. Later I started practicing the method of stenciling tests on objects. Use stenciled text has now become a prominent feature of my art work. I still use the same stencil and the graphite that I used to use in the nineties.
With the help of my work I try to create fantasy world, a world of fairy tales. With the help of my work I also try to address issues such as domestic violence, gender roles, themes of violence and disaster that we fail to recognize. I believe that my work will help me to get rid of such nuisances of the society.
I create installations for indoor as well as outdoor sites. Various elements of my installations and sculptures are utilized in some of my site specific installations. In a way all of work of art is representation of one another. My work of art has been appreciated by critics as well as by the common people.
