Artist Statement

Combining my 4year old daughter’s sketches, my painting and my mother’s crochet-- I am working on these mixed media works during shelter in place. During the pandemic- we are coping with our ennui, anxiety and frustration through making art- my daughter and me in the US and her grandmother in India. I need for this work to document these days and remind us that no matter where we are physically on the planet, our sentiments and frustrations are real. Our losses, anxiety and fears are real. Our love, albeit virtual, is real. I hope these works will foster a dialogue of commonality of experience across the globe. These works can be part of a larger narrative about motherhood, migration and belonging.
