Artist Statement

My work is about reminiscing the past, living in absence and trying to preserve time. I try to bring forth a juxtaposition of the past with the present, thus prompting existential questioning and self dialogue within the viewer. Material plays a vital role in the execution of my works. I collect natural object like twigs, barks, and thorns and employ them in my visual language. I feel their organic nature holds an emotional connect with all living beings and also reinstates my belief that whatever a human needs is already provided by mother nature.
