Malavika Mandal Andrew

Artist Statement :
Inspiration for my creations is “Life” which means the five "great" or "gross" elements - ether, air, fire, water and earth. And along with this us – the human beings are also important element because otherwise five elements are of no use. All are linked and depend on each other. We - the human beings have unlimited desire. And along with this we want "identity". It’s an infinite journey and changes with the passage of time. My work reflects on the fading of an ideal world of one's imagination and aspirations because of changing priorities. Just like natural landscape is sacrificed to fulfill needs of shelter for humanity, a woman has to forfeit her aspirations of a career under the pressure of social responsibilities. The dreams of a perfect world become a haze just like our view becomes unclear due to layers of obstructions before our eyes. My work deals with this inevitable transition in life, whether in the personal, social, environmental or political spheres, taking place due to changing needs.

Medium of work is digital collage, tapestry and mix medium with fabric, print, thread, engraving, acrylic colours. Depend on works requirement I select the medium.
