Badass Indo-African Bride (2015)

36 x 48 inches

Oil on canvas

Badass Brides is a series of paintings that challenges traditional Indian expectations of marriage from the perspective of the ideal bicultural world. These paintings portray confident interfaith brides in a way that accepts and rejects aspects of Indian and North American culture. Scale of the paintings and the gaze of the subject is meant to confront the traditional Indian patriarchal views on a woman's freedom to a marriage of her choice. Models are photographed and then transformed into brides adorned in mendhi, jewelry and bridal attire through the imagination of the artist. The skin is resolved to be realistic and finely painting in contrast to the loose handling when painting clothing and jewelry to provide evidence of a painterly touch.
