Madhurima Ganguly discusses her work and the affect of Covid-19 from her studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Artist Statement:

Art is just one form of expression for me. My life, my thoughts, emotions, observations and my body are all my subjects. I am deeply inspired by nature and my part in it. Everything I absorb from this beautiful yet destructive universe is the inspiration behind my works. I prefer watercolor and ink. The fluidity of those materials resembles my thoughts and emotions which has no boundary and timeframe. They travel freely from one emotion to another.My migratory life and constant conflict of being rooted in my own culture gives me the chance to see visual images beyond time, space and cultural periphery.

My interest thrives on the vast exploration of life itself. Simple forms ,patterns and textures create my visual narrative. I am keen to address the oneness of nature through my creativity. Through my art I am constantly trying to address the politics of human nature. The process of my works are more manipulative than the end result.
