" My life and my cultural identity carve the directions
of my expressions. Inspirations for expression emerge around and within
me. I want my creative concerns to be relevant to my times, imbibing local,
regional and universal consciousness. I want to express these in my own
creative visual imagery.
I want to evolve and leave behind creative
visual symbols as references of our times__ creative visual symbols to
bridge the gaps in continuity of our cultural identity__ creative visual
symbols for use in the epics of our times.
I think in colour and achieve 'Sthai Bhava ' to accomplish creativity in my paintings.
During my career, as a free - lance painter, I have
painted, series of paintings on the themes of Mother and Child,Prisoners,
Haley's Comet, Visit to the valley of flowers, Eternal Bird,Human Landscape,
Naika,Kamdhenu, Dancing Horse, Kinnari, Hatyogini Shakti, Kali ___all these
tittles which I have given to my creative visual expressions converge on
" Being a Woman" and the unequal relationships which exist in the Society.
I am an optimist. I want to fly over the mountains,
the valleys, the rivers, the lotus pond___ On the beach, full of arms holding
stones in the hands, I will go on making my paper boat to go to the rainbow
horizon. When I will reach there, the stones, in the hands will become
flowers, I hope".
