Artist Purnaa Deb on Printmaking In India – 2018

David Krut Projects associated artist Purnaa Deb discusses printmaking in India and her own relationship with the medium. Deb’s showcase, A Tale Of Quests explores printmaking in collaboration with homegrown Indian processes.

The artist investigates and reconciles those instances that drive one’s walk into self with a surprising nuance and tenderness. By employing the full versatility of the multiple techniques of drawing, printmaking, appliqué (ornamental needlework in which pieces of fabric in different patterns are sewn or stuck onto a larger piece to form a picture or pattern), embroidery, text and visual vernacular Purnaa creates her own interpretation of traditional Indian art forms. Informed by research into the function, social and personal significance of everyday objects, Purnaa creates a dialogue between the present day and memory; an important theme in her work.
