Bathing Buffalos, Malabar Bride series

"In the series ‘Malabar Bride’, I digitally combined drawings of my own traditional Hindu wedding photos with found images of sumptuous imperial architecture, ethnic-chic interior design, and animal coloring books. I constructed these collage to create disorienting spaces of captivity and domesticity for the figures of the bride as she is contained within these interior spaces. Under the glossy and ironic aesthetic of consumer-age pastiche lies a darker world of entrapment." --artist's website
