Bride

2013, Oil on canvas, 36"w x 48"h

This artwork challenges multiple Indian feminist issues from an integrative bicultural standpoint, accepting and rejecting ideals from both Indian and Canadian culture. Indian motifs are juxtaposed with taboo imagery and composition to confront issues of conformity, which are largely regulated by a traditional male gaze. When painted or materialized into sculpture, these ideas are celebrated and become objects of permanence rather than concealment. This painting brings forth the conflict in interracial marriages. A Caucasian woman has been depicted as a Hindu bride, capturing the same joy any bride would experience on her wedding day. It is about the Indian caste system and marriage.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
