CUT OUTS - Ritual

The Indian folk art tradition has been a great source of inspiration for me. Its celebration of daily life and ritual, the interaction of humans and animals, and the reverence of all life form is a quality I find very attractive. Its decorative and stylistic use of line, form and pattern have evolved from a close study of natural life and form.

Drawing is an integral part of my work and is further explored in the form of paper cutting. Through these I am able to express some of the qualities of my cultural heritage not only through the form, style and technique but through the themes.
