She was featured in Marg Publication in the issue: In Focus: Abstraction covering works by three generations of abstractionists, conceptualized by Geeta Kapur and Jyotindra Jain.
Parul’s works around the subject of architectural spaces as a generator of perceptual experiences by countering the question of perception – of how a particular space informs the way we see. She is also interested in ways in which spatial interventions change our perception of each individual space as well as our own perception of ourselves in that space. The site and its structural elements become active participants in her on-site work. The viewer too leads the participatory role to decipher the experiential nature of the work. Her work on paper takes on a similar enquiry about the perception of the inhabited world, integrating geometrical forms, light, and movement.
Parul lives and works in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India.
