Currently in my 4th semester of post-graduation in painting at Government College of Art and Craft, Calcutta. I completed my bachelor’s from Amity University, Noida, between 2017 and 2021.
Relocating from Noida to Kolkata has enriched my experience, inspiring my work which explores the impact of this change on my mental and physical well-being, along with the shift in relationships. As an arts practitioner, I have always sought to use my creativity as a way to navigate life’s complexities and find meaning in the midst of challenges.
Recently, I was confronted with the diagnoses of PCOD and thyroid conditions, which brought about a profound shift in my physical and mental well-being. The weight of these health issues left me feeling mentally exhausted and physically drained on a daily basis. In search of a refuge for my emotions and a conduit for sustaining my artistic practice, I turned to the meditative art of line drawing. I predominantly employ black acrylic ink, and pen, as the black and white pattern symbolises both serenity and intense emotions. My artworks depict a range of human emotions within landscapes. Creating texture and line drawings on canvas serves as a therapeutic process for me. I draw inspiration from Hieronymus Bosch. I'm fascinated by his unconventional approach to landscapes and his ability to depict unsettling scenes with a captivating beauty.
The focal point of my work comprises lifeless birds, which, to me, serve as symbols of life's conclusion and disconnection from this realm. This reflects how humans undergo changes, forging new connections with others, forsaking past commitments, and embarking on new journeys with different individuals.
