ICONOPHILE | SUJEEWA KUMARI

19.09.17 - 03.10.17

Through the imagery within my male/female poetic drawings and paintings I explore an intimate inner landscape grappling with my own nostalgia, displacement and psychological transformation. These works act as both psychological and archival visual representations.

Objects I have collected that represent ‘home’ have become part of my personal archive. These materials, be it family footage, collected photo albums, magazines, nostalgic objects, friends and anything that is very personal to me, they are pieced together in these works.

Through these symbolic references often in combination with the female form, I explore the wider notion of freedom.
