Ancestral Linkages

Ancestral Linkages consist of conceptual landscapes, architectures, and still-life’s. These compositions are interspersed with figures depicted in grisaille form, derived from temple architecture in India.

Painted in watercolor the paintings are symbolic of the textural nature of growing up in India and emblematic of the intricacies and rituals of daily life there. While recalling aural, visual and kinetic experiences of my childhood, the spring board for these paintings was provided by occurrences in my current life in America.
