Artist's Statement :

So, as a printmaking student, I work on the movement of colour, shape, form and line with traditional mediums. Viewers will find that my method of image creation is imaginary. I am primarily inspired by Bodo society (a tribe of Assam), and with that I am propagating a different way to depict the daily life struggle of Bodo women. In the Bodo community, women have always played a key role - they are pertinent in the development of the Bodo society. If we look at them profoundly we will find their contributions - which is immeasurable. They have been the main uplifter of their society from the ages and no one can deny that. The contribution made by them to the social progress of their community is highly knowledgeable. Since time immemorial they have been exhibiting their talent through their work in various fields of social life, one can rightly observe that the Bodo women always spend their daily life working. They do not have any leisure time since leaving their bed at night. Keeping in mind the crucial role played by the Bodo women to ensure a sound society as equal to the male counterparts, their status in the society cannot measured only from their work participation but also it is interesting to observe that they are praiseworthy for their honesty and ability to maintain their family as well as society smoothly. I intend to provide an out look through my printmaking and paintings artwork regarding the role and status of Bodo women. The pandemic brought me darkness and I personally feel a very different atmosphere around my space where people are not comfortable in such unprecedented times. It is very difficult to work as a printmaker without a studio but I forced myself to study and work. Currently, I am working with traditional mediums like watercolor, charcoal, pen and ink, etc.
