windows – uttarkashi


Doors and windows interest me wherever I travel.  Perhaps it’s the way they speak of openings, of new and unfamiliar views and perspectives. 

During a long retreat up in the Himalayan foothills I would often wander along paths that wound through simple rustic villages.  These three pieces were inspired by windows photographed on those walks, and put together with items mostly scavenged from the rubbish.  The painted silk panels were added upon my return to Bangalore.
