About the Artist
Payal Rajput completed her BVA in Painting (2018) and MVA in Mural (2021) from the Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU, Baroda. Her work explores the ideas of ’home’ and ‘memory’ with an aim to understand how architecture brings embedded memories to the surface. Through the mediums of pottery, ceramics, and painting, Payal creates sculptures and emotional structures that take reference from her ancestral home, recording its state and transformation due to age and wear and tear. Her practice is invested in exploring the ways in which ceramics (often seen as a solitary medium) can exist in conversation with painting, drawing, or photography. Payal is based in Baroda.
