My principle is to engage physically with art investigating the dialogue between action and matter with core emphasis in the act of making. The process involves formation of streams of colours using my feet as the brush. With this I am trying to reveal that the strokes created have individuality and sensitivity.
I am heavily inspired by ecology and try to find different ways I can represent it through my paintings. I use one small detail I found in nature and use that to create artworks. I wish to study individuality in the context of non human perspective. To see the world through the eyes of a glacier. To hear and see nature as prioritised subject material is to conceptualise its consciousness.
Deeptika is a gestural abstractionist. The idea of transcendence over form and material essence provides the overtones for her work. She is influenced by the idea of formlessness which is inherently present and practiced in Sanskrit and Buddhist cultures.
