Her work, basically reflects various natural and man-made things around her. Showing human tendency towards nature has become her major concern lately. In the conventional sense her works are not landscapes. But each time one looks at her works, one could see the places that exist somewhere in nature. They could be mental projections of the viewer or they could be the collective memories of her journeys.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In her up-coming exhibition, at Art Konsult, her work will emphasis on importance of natural elements and intervention of man-made elements in a natural space. The fascination towards open spaces is a key point in her works. She considers these works as transformation stages where she merges landscapes with objects or shapes; treating them as part of a positive space. She treats them as cultural images representing social surroundings.The use of surface texture plays another signature role in her work.  In the landscapes and with the use of various other elements, she prefers to reduce the subjective elements to minimum details like adding lights to a particular section, just to suggest their presence. And these depictions become her way of telling stories.last_img
