Riddhi’s interpretation of nature and its environment which is complex yet simple is like a dance. And it is this dance that makes perception attainable to us. As the Taoists suggest ‘The most inspiring instance is to stay quietly content with the mystical contemplation of nature and to feel at home with the world.’ Her artworks take a critical view of silent and the transcendent nature. She brings in textures and patterns inspired from tapestries, curtains or wood grains into a solitude space and confront it with intentions of serenity. The repetition of lines, continuous involvement, thin brushstrokes and subtle colours are therapeutic healing. The mediums she incorporates into her practice are acrylic, graphite, charcoal, ink, gouache and Indian dyes. To begin work I usually think of waterbodies like sea and ocean and their expanse. I often correlate this vision with the warp and weft. The lines in her work function as a symbol for concepts as diverse as personal experiences, internal energy and mindfulness. When you witness an ocean, you notice its endless and infinite nature. Where the water constitutes the ocean, here, the thread constitutes the framework. This ideology often becomes the groundwork for her construction.
