Purvi engages herself in noticing people’s behaviour, nature and also how they interact with her. Initially she started making a series of drawings of her mother. This eventually led to an interest in actions and behaviour of her classmates and those in her immediate surroundings. From this moment, she realized her fascination with movement and animated figures. She also started to to notice distinct behaviours. Her work is concerned with human nature and showing gestural movements in a static construct. She has been exploring this idea of overlapping human movements by the use of multiple lines and tones. Forceful lines and the act of capturing live image one after another on the same plane have been her areas of interest.
