About the Artist:Puneet Kaushik is a Delhi based artist who returned home after about a decade of living in the USA. His return was coupled with sentiments and nostalgia of sinking roots within his cultural milieu. These factors reflect very heavily in his art.
His new art show is a series of installations that talk about the self and the wounds and scars within, that one has to live with since childhood and the process of reliving those moments while raising one’s own children and seeing the world, once again, through the eyes of a young child.
“Scratch the surface of a suave individual and there lies a hundred lives unanswered , unattended – some happy and some piercingly agonising. Almost at some level one lives or learns to live with the pain that might be ugly and beautiful, something that has made a cosy home within. ” says Kaushik. It is these memories and hidden secrets that have inspired this collection.
