Charuka is passionate about taking creativity & arts to the masses and in creating meaningful communities.
Her recent endeavour with www.artstoheart.com aims to indulge into meaningful community within the arts.
She has always been professionally restless and curious and has hence explored her practice within multiple dimensions with the arts.

STATEMENT

Born & brought up in a small town (Agra,India) I was very early in my life introduced to the concept of identity and a miss of it.
Hence, my works are a symphony of an urban woman’s (often myself) quest for her identity and the emotional & psychological impact of it, on her life.
Creating mosaics & compositions journalling these thoughts and tales especially in context to the contemporary issues like gender, sexuality, environment etc that play a predominant role in shaping of the woman of today & tomorrow.
To further my practice, I am also keen on exploring these issues with a common thread that runs through different cultures, geography & religions. And, its impact on women across the globe.

My painting explore these concepts while featuring a play of the nature itself. And, narrating its voice.
Each piece can be sen as a scene that invites the viewer to stitch together their own narratives, drawing on personal experience and generating their own meanings.
Creating a body of work that is visually linked to the shaping of our future. Through, an often missing voice- The voice of a woman.
