Materializing Thought

I have always loved the stone jaalis of Mughal and Rajput architecture. Primarily am fascinated by the patterns they make with light.. Furthering this fascination I made an X-ray work called 'Trapped in Air'. In this work I used jaali designs on red acrylic sheets. But the struggle was to make the stone jaali fluid... into something that could show movement. This thinking led to tranferring the jaali design on to cloth (yellow denim in this case). And thus was born this gorgeous screen that hangs in my drawing room like a piece of architecture from another time

Needless to say it was a wonderful experience working and interacting with such amazing and creative people
