My works are culture-specific. In other words, through my paintings and installations, I try to respond to the histories and culture of a particular place in which I live and work. The place can be either my native town Jamalpur in Bihar or Santiniketan, a location in West Bengal, where I am studying. The selection of objects and images in my works that indicate my preference for the vernacular culture is a way of creating a site-relationality, a sensory-cognitive engagement with a particular place and culture.
The paint and support materials, such as plastic sheets or tin shed, which I use in my works, are available locally and used by the local sign-painters who decorate shops and vehicles. These are also used to construct the local temporary shops. These mundane, everyday materials are essential for my works and I also use religious imagery and vernacular scripts to heighten the sense of the local.
