My work stems from a longing to order my thoughts and ideas cohesively. The process is influenced by the environment I have adapted to in North London where I went to do my MFA, quite different from my hometown of Bangalore. My thematic material tends to evoke 'awareness', association and memory. More recently, in addition to painting, I have begun to experiment with moving image that gives the viewer an insight, through video, into the processes involved in making the paintings.
