These prints are created by a special plate created by silk. I etch the words into the plate and made multiple impressions on the aquarelle paper. There is an effect of a stitched embroidery as if the words were stitched onto the paper — resulting in an abstract landscape. These works are conceptual, based on Identity series that represent the word Identity in three different languages Asian (Gujarati) Western (English), and European (Dutch). The viewer has to take a moment to start to recognize the words that are woven into the artwork.
