Gargi Raina’s imagery makes use of simplistic elements which allow her to define the visual space with an ordered presentation, yet create a fluid sense of movement. The ordered representation of objects in her work tends to both constrain the viewer with an almost rigid discipline, yet allow compartmentalized travel from one section to another. The artist explains this almost contradictory process of the viewer engaging with the work: “Objects, images are repeated with an almost ritualistic obsession, a way of anchoring oneself. This has led me to delve into the process of transmutation that takes place within an image. Objects hold the same form but as one’s intention changes, the interpretation widens. The resultant imagery here may be seen as defining and entering closed spaces with an attempt to locate openings.” (Gargi Raina, Exhibition catalogue, Synergy Art Foundation Ltd., 1996)
