I am currently engaged in a project ‘Gestures and Mudras: Drawing Observation’. The research and development project is funded through the Arts Council England and will result in two exhibitions. One show is planned for May and the second early June at Rich Mix and Standpoint Gallery, respectively. I am researching Odissi Dance through drawing in UK and India and running workshops for women from the South Asian Diaspora, living in London (Tower Hamlets) and Manchester (Cheetham Hill and Levenshulme). On Saturday 14th, I am flying to India for research, to seek new experiences and teach. The project has taken me to Bangalore already but will take me to Odisha, Chennai and Ahmedabad. I am looking forward to learning, meeting with peers and moving my project on!
