Meenakshi Sengupta

Sengupta uses traditional pictorial representation to push formal and aesthetic conventions to produce new meanings. Using wit and irony she explores gender relationships in contemporary life. She deliberately combines icons of “High” art and those of mass culture with wit and irony to redefine their role as cultural signifiers.

 

She believes that it undermines the perception of art as a mirror of a state of cultural purity, and underscores its discursive character as shaped by history and culture. She concentrates on certain elements which regulate stereotypes of the ideal image of a women and the constructed politics of their nature. She is fascinated with the process of re-contextualization of the subject of the image and its relevance to contemporary life.
