An artist’s sensitivity towards the culture is felt in her choice of material used in an artwork. I constantly find my self making use of soft and flexible materials in my works, because they can easily be shaped and managed. I have tried to draw out the main themes by using such materials with the characteristic property of being able to contain (because to me, this is a metaphor of care.
In the process of a using a needle and thread which shuttles back and forth, two things that were once individual become whole or form a union. This is not unlike individuals in a society who form relationships which give new meaning to their lives, and affect people around them.
These materials are not just objects to me; they are a part of my life and experience, created from my imagination. I like repeating small unit of artworks in a huge set, because whole structures such as these allow us to feel the process of life, making us want to get close to it.
