Hybrid Drawings (2016- ongoing) are sculptural translations derived from sketches of imagined structures that draw on motifs from Gothic, Indo-Saracenic, Victorian, Mughal and brutalist styles, to name a few. Each form points toward histories of the movement of peoples via an appropriation of regional architectural forms, combining markers of kingdoms, colonies and the local that exist today. The works are site-specific and play on the memory of the built environment. They present a unification of the transcultural identity, against the current wave of puritan ideologies, that references various histories, geographies and cultures.
