Artwork Description

Silky expresses that the relating events from life to the built and natural environments around her are a constant non-deliberate process for her. With a prominent change in life, the falling of a leaf was synonymous and the understanding of chapters in life and the underlying complexities of simplest of realities became deeper. The act of crushing leaves and bonding them together to form a shape takes inspiration from the complexity and amalgamation of various chapters that come together to make me feel one.
