Artist Statement

As an artist working with an incurable and progressive muscular disability, I think deeply about the physical act of painting. Building layers of paint in the form of washes and drips, with a methodical application of dots, I seek connections between body and mind; movement and stillness. The free flowing forms that emerge through this process often fill and gather in parts of my canvases while loosely falling out of “frame” in others. Growing up as a woman in India, living in the US and being a mother, I use painting to express my unique experience within a body – a space where femininity and innate creativity intersect with societal attitudes towards disability.
