Many streets many wonders
‘Many streets many wonders’ is an ongoing project by the artist. It is a visual documentation of the ‘local’ ethos of places and how quickly it is being lost. This is the ‘India’ chapter of this series.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly. – Richard Bach
This series of artworks is a reaction to the dreadful incidents of brutal rapes taking place in India and particularly the one that occurred in December 2012, New Delhi. Since then the shadow of fear & insecurity has left its mark in every household.
This series is to give power to those women who fearlessly have snatched their portion of freedom, have kept going against all odds and have protested and fought at every stage for their basic human right to ‘Freedom’
Who watches the Watchman?
This famous line from the cult graphic novel ‘Watchman’ forms the basis of this series.In this series the artist holds up a mirror to our times and initiates the debate that is relevant in many developing countries today. The very machinery that is supposed to protect us, fails to do so..Most countries are weighed down by the immensity of corruption within the authorities, where large numbers are living on the edge, unsure of what the future holds.
The promise of a new world and new politics is projected onto them. But is this promise real, unreal or surreal. The artists visual language is derived from her immediate urban environment. Each element represents a smaller component integral to the concept as a whole.
