About The Artwork

From the "Dancing To My Heritage" photogram collection. This photogram explores the notion of dance as a form of cultural heritage and identity - more specifically. the wide range of shapes and movements formed in traditional Indian dance. I use the darkroom to manually document fictitious scenes from my Indian heritage, symbolically merging fact and fiction using both drawing and the darkroom as a medium. The image is de-contextualised to enable viewers to project their own worldviews to complete the picture. The fluid and ethereal quality of lines are achieved by hand-drawing the image on acetate using fine liners - the acetate is then processed in the darkroom using traditional documentary cameraless photographic techniques. Exposing the drawing to light creates a print without a camera on photographic paper, reflecting the rawness and essence of our own human lines, stripped down to black and white. The result is an attractive aesthetic that is both bold and delicate as well as modern and contemporary - perfect for admiring the nuances of traditional Indian culture and dance as an art form.
