STATEMENT
As an artist I always try to enhance my creativity through my artistic thoughts and skills, which are developed in the environment of my home town Gwalior, where I have spent my whole childhood and completed my professional studies. This city is surrounded by many heritage fort and many other historical monuments, and that’s why the silent witness of that classical traditions which inspires me a lot and gives a classical background to my work. From the last six years I have been working on my own professional ground and my art works contain the contemporary aspects with a traditional outlook. Besides the backgrounds, another two very important aspect of an art work are the physical content of the work (here the materials, how/why is it used to create a particular form and the form of the work) and the concept or theme of the work. In my works I always try to make a perfect bridge between these two aspects that my works convey the same that I really want to show through my works. My works are mainly based on the theme of “feminism” and being a woman I feel that it would a duty of mine to inform the society about the suppressed and unexpressed feelings of those women who are dominated by others. I have taken various instances of woman characters and their activities from the historical places of Gwalior, where once they were dominated by the society. In my work, mainly I have used the object “zafiri” which symbolically signifies the domination of women, because once behind these beautiful zafiris the freedom of the women was prisoned. I have also used some female figures, in modified forms, with different postures, having different facial expressions, as regards their activities which I want to show in my works. Besides these I also have worked on those romantic feelings which a woman also possesses on her. In one of my works where a female figure with her male companion, sitting on a swing, near the pond, I want to convey the romantic desires of a woman. In some of my works, I have also used some musical instrument to show the divine aspects of the woman’s character. I have made the female figures with wings on their back that to convey the desires to fly over the boundary, which symbolically represent the freedom of women. And I have generally used materials like brass, bronze casting, iron, wood, color etc., in my works. Where the classical background gives a solid base to my works, I have used some ancient modified figurative objects in my works to convey the particular theme which I want to show in a contemporary manner.
