linoleum and foot print / 18 x 30 in / 2016-17

The work, MARKS, inclines towards the element Earth or Prithvi, resulting from the unknown participation of people walking on linoleum mats laid out at different public places including school, market, parking lot, temple, bank post-demonetization (November 2016), hospital, traffic, metro station, spice market, etc.Resonating with Stanley Brouwn’s practice which explored the impact of our daily actions on the environment, the work captures the abstract imagery of people’s footprints, metaphorically representing the imprints or rather stains we are leaving behind on our planet.
