This paint splattered green kurta is about rebirth and renewal. It is the second ‘self-portrait’ in a set of three. I let so many negative people and things make me bitter for a while. But that bitterness started to hurt more than the people and things had. I am a positive person by nature and I really do love my life. So why was I letting certain things colour my outlook to life?
The ‘kurta series’ is my way of working through and gaining catharsis. By naming it I give it form and then like I mentioned in a post long ago – I put that learning into a box called experience and move on 🙂 This green kurta is redone with just that in mind. Wherever you saw scars and hurt on the black kurta – you will now only see a profusion of flowers and nature’s bounty.
Rebirth and Regrowth.
If you look closely enough and if you have been paying attention to the elements I use in my work – you will see a little of all of them. After all it is my work that rejuvenates my soul.
This green kurta is a self-portrait in healing…
There is one last one left in this set. That too I will share with you all soon enough 🙂
As I mentioned in previous posts. I am on a journey of self-discovery. Of marking points and chapters in my life. I am also trying to document my life through a series of narrative storytelling self-portraits… You can read the various posts about my journey thus far here or just go through these three links that I think will give you some context of where I hope to take this series.
- I love my life which culminated in this post – Equanimity was MIA
- One word
- The lines on my face
- X – Marks the spot

I follow your work pretty closely and I feel you are a great woman and an artist. Love your work. Be it the dog portrait or outfits designed to signify healing and self discovery or the amazing accessories. #respect
