Quilted thoughts

The Other Way Round | 1st edition-Project Quilted Thought |Jaipur Chapter: Sandarbh Artist Residency| 2012

The use of text/language has always worked for me in its literal connotations, as well as a visual form and this work reflects it.
Taking reference from one of my drawings, wooden block was designed to be used for making repetitive patterns on the fabric. The printed fabric was then designed into a quilt using the traditional technique of Jaipuri Rajai making the work ready to wrap around oneself.
Designed in limited edition of 10, this work is from an ongoing series- Quilted Thoughts that are narratives of the labor intensive and repetitive, mundane life of the block printers drawing parallels to the technique of Sanganeri block printing.
