Representation of genitalia in visual art; Indian and western art culture

I look at examples of eastern and western art created between the period of classical antiquity and the mid-point of the 20th century that include imagery of human genitalia and examine their narratives and sub-texts through a personal, cultural and societal prism.

  • My work touches on sexual violence, the abuse of the individual and, more broadly, feminism and human rights. It explores gender, sexuality and representation. I believe that art has the ability to influence cultural and political systems and by doing so, it can redefine the role of women. My work is multi disciplinary, that includes charcoal, digital prints, water colours, bronze sculpture and time based media.
