About The Artwork

The base of this collage is polyester net, thus making this piece transparent. I have  appliqued cardboard and paper collages trapping it wth the net fabric. It is inspired by the bandstand at Arnold Circus, Shoreditch, London. I loved applying different materials to highlight the multicultural aspect of the area in Tower Hamlets I want to make bigger work on this project and I loved this idea of using transparent net, it's a new type of work i'm exploring in my practice. This piece was exhibited at  Leila's Cafe on calvert Avenue for a month or so in East London. The Friends of Arnold Circus is a charitable community organisation dedicated to the regeneration and upkeep of the Arnold Circus bandstand and surrounding Boundary Gardens, located in the centre of the historic BoundaryEstate, Shoreditch, London.They are a great charity do follow them on Instagram

I'm obsessed with all different kinds of ephemera, travel tickets, invoices, old bits of paper, softness and textures of paper, folded, cut, scrunched and perforated papers. I'm a low tech and spontaneous kind of artist, scissors, scalpel, tapes, cutting mat rulers and pens. biros and pencils are ready to hand. I adore colour and working immediately with mark making I want to see results of making various medium of mark. I enjoy working with a 3D element to my collages adding height to different parts of the collage or pleating certain parts. I often use a thread and needle to combine parts of the collage, I don’t do neat and precise I enjoy being a bit messy and not perfect, I think its much more energised and beautiful to view My inspiration stems working and living in india for 12 years from living in a city like London I love to walk and see things, streets and parks and people and smells, different food places, ethnicities, peoples expressions and character somehow make their way to my Fibre collages, I like to challenge the marker the pen and paper and keep revisiting common techniques and adjusting them I’m inspired by so much I have much more to investigate on how my Art will further reveal itself. I see the viewer as part of the art whilst they look at the art, I feel my Artwork s now complete, a conclusion an ending of a play or film, please sit or stand and stare and contemplate, take your time. don't rush
