As an artist living and working in India, it is impossible to ignore mankind’s role as a major geological force, one whose impact we have not yet fully fathomed. Often rich in mythical references, my drawing, sculpture and installations deal with the fossilization of material and memory. My practice draws attention to a newly discovered environment and my personal journeys of being uprooted from one to another unknown territory.  I approach cities as forests-turn-epileptic wastelands and landscapes with distorted eco-systems. Man’s constantly growing hunger for “productive space” has resulted in mass deforestation and the disappearance of hundreds of thousands of species of plants, animals and insects over the decades. My work is a testament to this loss; I draw inspiration and collect samples of nature from every city I live in, incorporating them into my practice.
