This series was inspired by the artist Morris Louis who used a pour- drip method in his works. I used a similar method but changed the medium. I wanted to experiment with textile art as it was a new medium for me. With the help of stencils I created Indian ethnic motifs on the surface. Toxic clouds form the backdrop on these tapestry-like paintings. Poisonous green, murky purple, oxidized orange and deadly blue streaks are the colour scheme for this series.
