Artist’s statement

I explore ideas about a mixed cultural identity and how much one culture leaches into the other. As a second-generation Australian-Indian I experience first-hand the issues expressed in my artwork. Using a three-step progression from photography, I extended this into painting and inkwork to mirror the cultural progression of the characters within the artwork.
