I am a St. Louis-based, Indian- born interdisciplinary artist. My artistic process is a practice of sustained curiosity and constant learning through asking questions. The artwork results from pursuing inquiry borne out of a community-based, research-driven process. Each project begins with discovering a core idea around which I build the work. I then experiment with various media to find the best fit to deliver this core idea to its intended audience.  Transforming the violent act of cutting into an act of creation is central to my artistic approach. My process involves creating clusters of undulating forms by warping, cutting, manipulating, and installing paper and found materials. My installations transform public space into places of interventions by creating grounding and contemplative experiences for the viewer. Each exhibit brings together a site specific, immersive, multi part installation that is organized by visual complexity and relationship of individual elements to each other. Large and small representative and abstract symbols establish a progression to encourage the exploration of patterns, forms and the overall theme that I consider in my work. Stories, conversations, reading, and listening enter into my artwork, which may or may not be recognized by the viewer. This is done with the motive of creating an immersive environment for the viewer to enter and explore.
