The artist, trained in fine arts with a specialization in sculpture, has delved into an interesting territory in this ‘Shankh-Man’ series where she contemporized the visual language of a traditional marker Conch shell. The artist has explored the visual and emotional quality of the object ‘Shankh’ or the conch-shell as it is heavily used in the daily life and rituals of Hindu and Indian tradition. The sound and the vibration exuding while playing a conch shell are regarded as holy on the occasion of new beginnings and worship. 

The artist has taken the form of a conch shell and molded it into various expressions of human behaviors in rest and movement. The Shankh-Man or the Shankh-human resides in a playful and natural human activity.

‘The Dreamer’ explores a quasi-classical form of a lying figure with a surreal bending achieved with the form of the conch shell, adorning the work with the quality of a dream itself. The blue horizon awaits with its mystery and wonder, while the figure bathed in pristine white lies peacefully. The hollow of the conch over the figure adds a layer of mystery, playfully embedded in the conceptual framework, and adds drama to the figurative expression. A great keep for your bedside table!
