Name Of The Artwork: Walk in the Spice Market with Grandpa _ Cardamoms Caption Of Artwork: This is a multimedia textile artwork where an observational sketch of cardamoms has been made with inks and a dip nib pen. This has been digitally printed out on silk satin fabric and then embroidered with a vintage cornelly machine. The juxtaposition of indian spices with irish vintage embroidery techniques creates the story of my indian heritage with western contemporary textile design experience. Name Of The Artwork: Walk in the market with grandpa_Cellular Cabbage Caption Of Artwork: This is a multimedia textile artwork where a cabbage leaf was put under a microscope and photographed through that lens to create organic cellular design patterns. This photograph was then stencilled and cut out in parts to create a lace like lattice effect. The design was also incorporated into found leather scraps by laser cutting them. Same process was applied to brightly striped tribal Kutch Mushroo textiles too. This juxtaposition of elements denotes the journey of my indian heritage with western contemporary textile design techniques.
