Ravina, through her artwork, questions the notion of “normalcy” in human lives. With a belief that human actions are circumstantial and consequential, Ravina intricately studies everything that retains human traces. Delving into the complex layers of human personality, behaviour and tendency, Bhaisa’s art uncovers the underlying socio-political factors concealed by the surface “show” we put on of normalcy.
Ravina Bhaisa lives and works in Surat, Gujarat, India.
