My work is transformation of Miniature Painting to Sculpture. I have accomplished this by using miniature sized bricks which not only imitate the larger building blocks but also symbolize the ‘Dot’ used in miniature painting, to create an image. The brick is a unit, used repetitively; it is a unit of strength, power and support. It talks about land ownership and possession. It shows a constant struggle between retaining one’s identity and yet blending with the masses. It also communicates the need to be a part of a strong organization. It talks about the struggle to fit in, making a place for oneself in a system.
