The crux of Ekta’s work is the personal interpretation of layers of experiences woven with paraphernalia of design motifs, forms and elements derived from miniature paintings. Her interest in Mughal, Persian and Rajput miniature paintings has aided her in developing an independent voice that makes its entrance in the pictorial surface- layered with metaphorical and personal references.
Ekta in her new series of works done in an amalgamation of multiple materials and processes like print , paint and embroidery on crotchet and other fabric that creates visual terrain full of fragmented accounts of personal life and experiences. Embroidered lines sewn through the pictorial surface cutting across different planes of anecdotes and accounts deplete with fascinating imageries. The material usage in this new set of work plays an important role in invoking the her concept about migration, memory and identity.
