Meghna’s art practice explores the study of manmade and natural formations. In her painted drawings, she creates a textured surface with translucent paper and textile to draw on using ink. The surface becomes a dense terrain, upon which she draws geological formations, creatures and patterns that are shown adapting to an ever-changing environment. She also works with found object assemblages and glass reflecting the fragility of our existence.
Meghna lives and works in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
