A jali window (or jaali) is the term for a perforated stone or latticed screen, with an ornamental calligraphy or geometry pattern. Early work was performed by carving into stone, later the Mughals used marble and semi-precious stones to create inlaid patterns.
Typical in Islamic architecture as well as in Indian architecture, this particular etching was derived from a small screen window in the Maharaja’s seven- storey palace in Jaisalmer.
Crumbling palaces, echoing pillared halls, mesmerizing carving and dreams in stone are the inspiration for this, unique work on paper that captures the essence of Indian architecture.
They are the spaces and elements she seeks out on her journeys around North India. The sense of place, rich emotion and meaning that she finds, Natasha brings back to us conveyed through rich colours, intricate design, subtle and evocative textures. Always with a twist that makes her work unique, and exciting.
