Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it.
Phulkari the treasured embroidered fabric thats in the background becomes a base to one of the most mundane toilet roll. This piece of fabric is a small piece from my treasured collection, its geometric motifs build a connection between me and where i belong. Here its giving importance to a toilet roll raising its value to much treasured item in 2020.
Year 2020 has made us all feel collectively alone and together at same time. The news of lockdown brought with panic buying- from toilet roll to pasta packets everything was flying off the sheves. This painting is motivated by my internal conversations during this time.
A delicate and beautiful reminder of 2020- The mundane treasures will look good together hanging in a pair.
