In search of Antidote-Intercepting Psychosis was proposed work for PEPA it was about it is a process to find an antidote understanding the subconscious thoughts through various ritual processes. These rituals inspired by my cultural shamanistic practices which are incorporated in my work with profound metaphoric connotations. The idea is to undergo an experiential cathartic effect on both my audiences and me.

Catharsis, Purification, Healing, Filtration, and Condensation & Extraction of Pure Self are essential elements in my works. Through various approaches which are Ephemeral, Spontaneous & Interactive in Nature. Key areas of my concerns have been Humanitarian, related to War, Crimes, Migration, Women's issues, and Socio-political, Psychological and Philosophical aspects. All these thoughts go in the process of Distillation (psychologically/ physical) relating to concerning issues. Collect the research material and the sources to finally, extracting a purified element out of it. It helps in the process of healing.

 My work encapsulated with Process of Distillation metaphorically may be applied to all areas of concerns/ issues addressed in works like socio-political, Ecological, Environmental, Psychological, Philosophical and Existential questions about Life &Humanity.

 As an individual who is part of a social structure, a self who has to navigate through repercussions of socio-political upheavals, develop perspicacity on related human issues, and on a personal level of existence coping with an emotive response of alienation, insecurity, fear, the by-product of our "Post Modern" era. The duality of exploration reflects the concepts underlying in works. I outline my art practice as Multidisciplinary as my art practice has evolved through practice in various mediums like Performance, Printmaking, Painting. My focus has been to blend this medium of art into an interdisciplinary language.
