My art speaks of
my womanhood. The kind of womanhood that exuberates my desire to reach out to a world
beyond fantasies and desires. I extend my own image as a marking to my desire to
self-pleasurise and, in turn, to pleasurise the voyeur. This connect that I builds so beautifully
in my art helps its viewers to look at the idea of ‘pleasure’ quite closely. In the process, pleasure
intersects with desire to create an aesthetic that invokes fantasy. This fantasy can be rhetorically
and historically traced as the element that constitutes eroticism in the arts.

Any incident has binary manifestations on the human psyche. Diverse vantage points come into
existence in order to interpret its occurrence; respectively through the collective conscience of the
masses and secondly through the sufferer’s perspective. The first represents the axiomatic truth, a
manifestation of eons of despotic political rule and manipulated interpretation of primordial texts all
this receptively embraced in the popular culture.
This is what I have extrapolated through my works. While in one the perpetual patriarchal libidinal
force is being mocked through a very blunt imagery of the male genital; it being revered and
glorified in all its grandeur. The sunflower emphasizing the hypocritical righteousness endowed upon
the male legion. This appreciated self absorbed narcissism and exhibitionism lays testament to the
increasing goriness erupting in our society. The second work contrastingly displays a reverse role
play, an answer to the endless pathos of the fairer sex; where the oppressed turns into the
oppressor and vice versa. It’s more of a vengeful fantasy, an outcome of the ruthlessness bestowed
upon women for eons; it’s about the rise of the ‘femme fatale’. The works can be interpreted at multiple levels both metaphorically and literally. Not only are the
works absolute diametric imagery of the masculine form but they advocate the universality of the
issue of rape also. Rape does not confine itself to a defined gender neither does it annihilate the
possibility of upsurge of repercussions. Nothing can rationalize its occurrence yet its negation is
impossible.
