READING BETWEEN THE LINES
March - July 2020
This was created as part of my Thesis Project at Srishti under the theme of Vanishing Livelihoods - Seen & Unseen. My artistic exploration is inspired by the lives and livelihoods of Secondhand Booksellers, secondhand book as an object of memory, nostalgia and tactility.
The series titled 'Characterless Character // Heartbreaker’ is an exploration of the anatomy of English alphabet through illustrations and typography. I have tried to weave a story together, piece by piece, with each letter revealing a part of this visual narrative. I have used illustrative innuendos to reflect upon the emotions of the recurring character – her struggle with loneliness and a constant need to take a walk down the memory lane to relive the time gone by.
