Remen Chopra’s multi-layered works executed mostly in mixed media appear to shift back and forth between the real and the make-believe. The artist’s imagery is drawn mostly from her own experiences, while the element of drama present in these works is directly influenced by the media and cinema. Making a point, Chopra directs our attention toward the irony of the dramatic, both in real moments and in scripted ones.
