Artist's Statement :

I can explore better when I am in my studio. I have started working in my room during ever since the pandemic. My works are about nature for which I chose a traditional medium. The most important elements of my work are texture and motive. I have taken subjects and objects from nature. I display my work indoors or outdoors wherever I feel a garden is my real aim, I want to continue this work. Now I want to make the viewers feel the same way I feel when I work with nature.Having seen an Indus Valley terracotta statue of a goddess in person inspired me a lot. I got to see the terracotta temples of Bishnupur, Joydeb, and the Surul Rajbari in West Bengal where I have seen minute details of forms that have interested me. That's why I feel like working in texture. Apart from this, in my own state Tripura, there is an archaeological site in Pilak. There are sculptures of , animals, and birds with distinctive expressions and some scenes from Ramayana on terracotta plaques, dating back to the Pala dynasty. The stupas here with their small relief sculptures also inspire my practice. I get the inspiration to work in my terracotta by visiting these places.I also work in wood and metal. The “Dancing girl" from the Harappan Civilisation made me explore metal where I prefer to give texture and motive to execute my process.
