Artist's Statement :

Nature inspires me, and her presence is always found in every step of my daily life. The real India is to be found in its villages, as I saw in Santiniketan. The timelessness of Santiniketan’s life has been deeply reflected in my artwork. In my works, I try to capture the momentary appearances of nature. My conversations with the loneliness of 'Taladhwaj', 'Chaiti Griha' are depicted in my works of art. I try to introspect and capture the authenticity of pure colors of Santiniketan's poetic environment through the layers of my visual articulation.
In Santiniketan, it is still possible to find the old lodestars and the elderly. In my works of art, I try to catch the simplicity of Santiniketan life. The aesthetic sense of an ordinary architecture of a house has been reflected in my work. The surroundings of this place have enriched me culturally and as a whole. Here, I used some traditional Indian techniques of textile, such as a technique from Bengal Kantha, applique, shibori etc in my art of expression.
In 2020, I received an opportunity to study in ' École Des Beaux-Arts, Angers', France as an exchange student from Kala Bhavana. There, I painted the outdoors on fabric. In the form of art, I depicted the natural beauty of Europe; different personalities from different nations; the cityscapes of France (Le mans, Angers, Chalonnes), Belgium, and the Netherlands; floral beauty of Europe; landscape of rural West France, my daily life in the time of the Covid pandemic, self-portraits, lonely streets etc. I used applique, digital printing, photographs, eco printing, Shibori, naturally dyed fabric, a technique of Bengal Kantha, embroidery, watercolour, pastels, metal objects etc to imitate my memories.
