Jignasha Ojha. Baroda, India. CHAOS. 2014. Acrylic and gold dust on canvas. Size: L48 X W36 inches.
Jignasha’s story. My art is a satirical comment on the present-day socio-political scenario in the sub-continent. I am inspired by Indian traditional miniature paintings, especially in terms of perspective, color and composition. "My work is a time machine where the memory of past and the experience of present come together. We hold our present and focus on our future according to what we have experienced in the past. Characters from the past come into my work and create a “drama”, give a message or “question” our present society. The loneliness of modern man, Indo-Pakistani relationships, a woman’s place in society, are amongst my subjects.”
