After finishing my Bachelors and Masters in Fine Arts (Painting) From M.S.University, Baroda I moved to Delhi and started teaching B.F.A and M.F.A level students at Amity University. I left the job after one and a half years to get back to my own work. I received the Lalit Kala Scholarship this year with which I get a studio where I work at Garhi Village , Lalit Kala. I have been working with constructing spaces from wood. Recently I have also been working on a small performance/film on ideas of marriage and rituals. It was perhaps the fact that I had never lived in a permanent place all my life which made me get interested in the idea of space which is constructed in our memories and the sub conscious. My endeavor has been to make real live spaces of these intangible ones from my memories. These spaces which I build look at the realm of the public and the private … perhaps the private “as” the public?
