Doors n new beginnings
An open door has been a long-time symbol of a new beginning. An open door shows that there’s a way out and can also provide a view of what lies ahead. A closed or locked door, on the other hand, can represent a dead end or create the feeling that there’s no way out. A door can be a symbol of opportunity or one of imprisonment.
It is well known saying ----When one door closes another one always opens ---- we drown ourselves in our negativity so much that often we forget to see the other doors ( opportunities) that open up for us. I am fascinated with ENTRANCES n my present work is all a study of the same.
i am making small sculptural forms indicative of fortified gates, entranrances, alleyways,porches, both archival n contemporary. Through this process I am exploring journey - the journey I started 40 years ago with clay, the journey that I started as daughter, a Woman, a mother, a wife, a daughter in law n so many other roles that society demanded of me. I am questioning myself in each role when I entered or exited it.
Despite all the questions n explorations I am coming from a space of complete Gratitute.
