The works bring in the visible and invisible divisions and separations that exist. A person is surrounded by self-contradictory constructions within and without oneself. Such contradiction is seen in the boders, the structure to support barb wires is in the shape of Y and Y as a letter stands for why, the artist thinks that the boundary itself is then questioning its own existence. It stands in a conversation with the landscape and surroundings.
She has held exhibitions at national and international venues recent being, her participation at India week 2017 in Hamburg, Germany. She facilitates courses and projects at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore.
