Ipshita Maitra


Artist and film maker, Ipshita’s practice incorporates photography, print making and mixed media collages. With themes that are influenced by the landscape she occupies they stem from a deep sense of loss and begin as archival records to document the passing of a time – geographically & culturally. She asks questions of identity and belonging, juxtaposing them with time and memory. Her works are process driven and handcrafted, born out of experiments with analogue and historic processes of photographic printmaking. Materiality occupies an important place, and there is definite leaning towards abstract expressionism and deconstructivism in her gesture.
