Sangita Maity

Sangita Maity uses serigraphy and a number of different natural materials to explore the geographical, political and environmental issues associated with landscapes. Serigraphy is a stencil-based printing process in which ink is forced through a fine screen onto the paper beneath. Also known as silk screening or screen printing.

 

The materials and Mediums used by Sangita Maity are interlinked with the imagery she depicts. Her most recent series of work explores the manmade landscape of Barbil, and its tribal inhabitants. While exploring the manmade landscapes of Barbil, she uses screen printing and soil mixed with iron ore to create a simulation of the landscape.

 

Gardening is one of Sangita Maity's top priorities, almost as an extension of her artistic practice which involves working with a variety of soils and metals. She starts her day by spending time with her cactii, orchids and succulents, before she moves onto her studio, which is just another room in her apartment.
