Artist Statement

I love figures: human, animal or plant, in their singular and composite forms. They emerge in my art in dream-like narrative configurations, Ancient cave paintings in India, Indonesia and France have left a mark on my images.

My figures, deeply rooted in the Indian mythical stories and memory, have also taken inspiration from Early Christian icons and pre-Renaissance European masters.


My paintings stem from faith in pure expression that is free from the burden of heavy concepts, and the power of beauty as a healing agent in a divided, dystopian world.
