Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Back on – Persevere!!

June 1st, 2010

Hello girls,

Wow! shamefully almost a yr has passed since my last post. A lot has happened since then. I am a new mum, Arch – you are a new wife! Nirali, you had your first solo show! Congrats girls! Its been a busy time for us all – but we have to push on with this project of ours. It will be a huge inspiration to us as well as to other artists to see us get through our struggles and persevere with our art.
Arch, it was great to be a part of your special celebration, and hugely inspiring to renew our 3FOR project.
Please note girls : 3FOR SHOW IN DECEMBER 2010
So, whats new in the studio?
A lot of ideas floating around. Just finished a huge commissioned project – so I have not been inactive painting wise – just on the blog – once again my apologies.
Posting the project so you girls see what I have been working on.
The big thing with commissioned projects is that I cant seem to get as excited and I always feel something is missing. Not that I dont give it my all, just that when I finish, I remember the struggle. Any of you face that same challenge?
New work: I have taken a whole lot of pictures of plants that I am trying to do a series on. I think somehow down the road it will connect to the ambiguous backgrounds of my nudes.
As a new mum, I’m still struggling to find time to juggle my hours. But, I have to say I have been feeling way more productive than when I was pregnant.
I will post something in a weeks time. Till then take care, and Arch, enjoy your “second” wedding in Blore – coming up this weekend! Then, my dear – its back to work!! we have to prep for our upcoming show!

  • Dear Poojie… thanks for initiating 3For again. Yeah, I think it will be super cool to have a 3 For event in December.
    What you were saying about commsioned projects… how much of it was your choice, like do they give you a theme…
    But I think either way its a struggle… Painting is struggle!!
    Anyway, I have also posted on the blog and hope to start posting regularly…

  • Way to go !!! I haven’t actually done any commissioned work…so cant comment on that one :)
