This documents the creation of a series of site-specific public street paintings, which flow through from Mattancheery to Fort Kochi. Each piece contains a thematic narrative which can be read in any order.
The paintings build on themes Vexta has been exploring in her work for some time. Conceptually her work explores themes of metamorphosis, transcendence and our interconnectedness with the surrounding environment, through the creation of contemporary, secular works which play with ideas of life /death and the feminine experience.
Travel and the creation of site specific work that reflects the locations that they are made are important in Vexta’s practice and her response to the environment plays a significant part in the process of conceptual development.
