(Website) Update

Well folks, I know it's been a while since my last post. In fact, this entire season has been a low blog season. I have been busy transforming my work life is ways that will better support me as an artist. As a result, I have not been making very much new artwork. I see this as necessary growing pains. Soon, I will come at you with mad, exciting, and energizing new work to fill your hearts, minds and souls. Hang in there, it's not too much longer now.

In the meantime, peruse through my recently updated website:

Peace, Meera

Family, friends, fans, I haven't forgotten about you. Since returning from New York, I have been busy preparing for the launch of my new brand, website and marketing material as I strengthen my design practice so that it can support my art. New York was wonderfully inspiring and that energy has also found its way into my art. Stay tuned for new work in the coming weeks.

Farangi Rang Barangi

Click on image for a better view.

Status: unfinished
Acrylic and ink on paper
18" x 50"

I wanted to leave you all with something a little special before I go off to New York for a week. So although, it's not finished and the reproduction is awful, I'm still posting the first painting in a series entitled "Farangi Rang Barangi".

"Farangi" is Persian word for foreigners, but is also used in Hindi and Urdu to mean the same thing. "Rang Barangi" is a Hindi/Punjabi colloquialism that means "colourful".

This new work is about exploring the ways in which clothing and dress express otherness, difference and belonging. It is not so much about the wearer as it is about the worn. It is also a celebration of Eastern textile arts, Indian femininity, and feminist genealogies where the passing down of jewelery and clothing from grandmother to mother to daughter is an old and sacred tradition.

Stay tuned for a better repro and a finished painting soon when I return.

"Jaan" is a hindi term of endearment meaning "life". These necklace designs have been inspired by traditional South Indian Thirumangalyam designs (known as Thali in Tamil & Telugu and Mangalsutra in Hindi). A mangalsutra is an Indian symbol of Hindu marriage.
