BFA , PRINTMAKING
Art opened up doors for self-expression. It started as a playtime in childhood and evolved me to take it up as my passion. I joined college where I came across Printmaking, which I took up as my specialization. I learnt different mediums under this discipline; lithography, etching, woodcut, and serigraphy. Print making offers the liberty of making multiple editions of one work of art, and this made me realize that I loved sharing my art with many people.
My concept was driven from my memories and as I dwelled deeper, I went on to understand what it meant to other people. I carried out research on the psychology of memories and I came across a statement: “You are who you are because of what you learn and what you remember, you are your memories” said Dr. Eric Richard Kandel, a Nobel prize winner in Physiology. Memories were your present some time ago, but now they are what define you. I decided to express the small things in life whether it be a cycle ride through the woods or just hanging out for a cup of tea.
My art is based on the print-making medium and I try to craft it in various ways to create another dimension in my work. I usually aim for my work to be an interactive platform wherein viewers can share their experiences with me. Developing a dialogue between the art work and audience who can connect and understand the narration through the perspective of an artist and through their own experience signifies the ideas of working on memories.
My art is what I understand of my surroundings. Many of my personal experiences also inspire my work. I always question myself and my understanding of my experiences and these pieces give way to self-realization. By sharing my art at different platforms, I wish to grow and explore as an artist.
