Part of my 'bedroom' series which celebrates memories spent in the different bedrooms that I have lived in, this linocut, along with being a self-portrait, is a remembrance of the special space where I spent a crucial year of my life in. It is from when I was a 19-year-old student in university in London, when circumstances made me spend a lot of hours in this bedroom, giving me time for quiet reading and reflection, and I suddenly 'grew up' during that one year, learning more about happiness and to love my life as an individual.

I am a printmaker based in Calcutta and London, and have trained for two years under a master printmaker in Calcutta. I have recently been working on a project on reflective self-portraits, exploring particularly the relationship between the ‘self’ and space, and how space can trigger self-reflection and I have recently been working on a project on reflective self-portraits, exploring particularly the relationship between the ‘self’ and space, and how space can trigger self-reflection and new ways of looking at oneself.
