Taking a more abstract perspective, Corollary is an exactitude of what the name suggests – exploration of the obvious propositions that follow from one that has already been proved. The work sometimes becomes the proposition and draws one in to visualize the conclusion. Sometimes the corollary transcends into the conclusion itself, creating an engagement in the opposite direction.
Aanshiki Mittal lives & works in Gurugram, India. An MBA-turned-artist, her work explores natural forms and structures as accents for her narrative on the evolution of humankind and society as a whole. Placing “God” as an observer and the true artist, with the world as both “his” creation and “his” muse, Aanshiki prefers to work with the most ubiquitous, yet heterogenous of natural materials -- wood.
Marked with a complete absence of straight lines, her work tends to preserve the natural contours of the ‘FOUND’ wooden pieces while augmenting it with the subtlest of artistic touches in an attempt to add a degree of refinement and attach an element of finality to nature’s hidden messages.
Her artistic expression is not confined to a single canvas, with her creations often traversing the lines between art and decor, sculpture and furniture, serving as a reminder of the proclivity of nature to reclaim her position alongside man, every single time.
