Bridges is Teesri Duniya's visual and photographic exhibition by artists whose work is informed by their Diaspora, trans-national and cross-cultural experiences. The project seeks to build bridges across communities and nations in spite of history of conflict and turmoil.


The intertwining of cultural maps, migration jumps and therapeutic work with refugees and immigrants, are embedded in my art work whether in large canvases, handmade books, watercolour painting, collage or illustration of poetry or prose.

As a visual thinker the process of "free association" translates into the stream of consciousness implicit in the art productions. a visual diary of the migrant journey is a metaphoric window in the process of the work.

Constant drawing of relationships whether figurative or abstact are central to the process. an internal life in relation to different influences and identities is expressed in a visual language that allows me a window in to my hybrid being. the gaze of the Other is a prominent part of my portrait works , while making maps of life journeys is integral to the non figurative work. the colours of india and the colours of my canadian life are intermingled as part of my visual language. often my work incorporates bits and pieces of my life journey collaged into the two dimensional surface. i think of my work as intimate letters to those who see the work and respond to it.
