The collection reflects the evolution of pain as it is experienced by human body. Empowered by ornamental scars, the skin represents an underlying stratum in transformation of pain. The skin, that has inherited the constituencies of this transformation, transcends to become a canvas.The collection illustrates the skin as an organic entity through which the revolutionary process of liberation is mapped.
