“My work is based on the idea of free Association, I am exploring the idea through writings and drawings. What fascinates me is the movement and energy during the working process; my thesis display focused on the distorted public and private spaces. Gradually I created my own visual representation of freedom of speech using found available spaces and materials. I started using shutter references as a base to evolve my idea. The shutter separates the public and private, it itself is a public canvas on which people express their thoughts and a means to send messages. To separate the public and private I am using shutter as a metaphorical base to express my thoughts freely and to create distortion for the viewer.
Just like thoughts, ideas are spontaneous and unfiltered. In my I used sticker also As children we are more spontaneous and freely express our views and the stickers bring a sense of nostalgia and represent a sense of joy, which I experienced and felt as I recalled while I was in the moment of creating.
Given the current situation, where we are living in a lockdown again and again my latest works give the viewers a glimpse of my private thoughts as a person living in lockdown with the hope to go outside.
SEEING LOCKDOWN EVERYWHERE AND BEING IN ISOLATION I CONTINUE TO START THROUGHING MY THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES ON MY CANVAS WITH IMAGES & WRITING”.
