About Falguni’s Practice

My work thus far has revolved around the coexistence of the old and the new and the conflict between leaving behind the familiar and venturing into unknown territories. I am constantly exploring that space between comfort and discomfort, striving to strike a delicate balance. It has been both challenging and fulfilling. The theme of space resonates deeply with me, whether it is the vast expanse of the open sky or the inner reaches of my own mind. I find solace in two-dimensional pieces that provide containment, as well as in the intricacies and complexities of multidimensional forms. Clay, in particular, speaks to my inner core. It is a medium that allows for spontaneity, intuition, and often serves as a reaction to architectural languages or organic forms. Architectural spaces, geological references, and imprints or fragments that carry a sense of nostalgia captivate my fascination. Memories and impressions are central to my thought process, influencing the visuals I enjoy exploring in my artwork. Through my art, I strive to deconstruct stereotypes, thoughts, and practices, reflecting my intense and compassionate relationship with my surroundings and my state of mind at any given time.
