She has taken elements of the city like ‘Tetrapods’ which by its form fascinated her to build a picture that might say more than its physicality. Her practice being surrounded by the subject of a Body, Gender and Violence, she has related these forms as phallic shapes that talks about the history of queer identities and communities of Bombay. Images of crabs and a young girl to show how we as human connect to our surroundings and vice versa. It talks about impermanence, mortality and the transient nature of life.
