About the Series

My artwork deals with the transformation of different Indian cultures over time. I overlaid various images of religious objects from different faiths with layers of color and decoration, each trying to assert itself over the other as societies often tend to do. Even if the intention is to obliterate an earlier tradition, it cannot fully do so as it will integrate aspects of the conquered culture to its own. The final image finds an intriguing balance of change over time in any given society.
