“When I moved to London ten years ago, I tried to build an emotional connection with the city so I moved from painting in the studio to the streets of London or Plein air. With each landscape,  I grew closer to the city to eventually feel a part of it. My paintings, therefore, are not just a collection of landscapes but a reflection on the metropolis through the eyes of the protagonist – a female figure, wandering from one scene to the next. The contemporary events and the modern world have made questions of identity, belonging, home and loneliness more poignant and acute than ever. We are uprooted and re-planted anew to live our lives far from the places we were born and raised. The protagonist’s silhouette is at times blurry, dissolving into the surrounding landscape, as she wrestles with the conflicting feelings of detachment and dislocation from the place of her birth, and the need to belong to a place not-quite-her-own, in city that houses many but is home to only a few.”
