Rajeshree Thakker

Rajeshree Thakker’s collages represent a fluid universe, inhabited by mythical characters, enigmatic female forms and celestial figures. The Goa-based artist draws inspiration from a wide swathe of subjects, ranging from world literature and poetry to Buddhism and Aurobindo’s integral Yoga. The works are a puzzle that the viewer can piece together – like an abstract haiku. Multilayered and textured, and using an esoteric vocabulary of imagery and symbols, the acrylics on canvas are deeply contemplative pieces that express the spiritual longings of the self, and its dilemmas and relationships to the world.
