Realm of the Unconscious

Realm of the Unconscious
Medium: Oil and paper mâché Size: 5'6 by 4'

Mehta uses her artistic process to insert everyday objects or human figures into a surrealist environment, thus allowing them to merge. She creates a dynamic space of interplay between creatures and objects that are not only quotidian but also otherworldly.

Mehta considers her artistic work a window into the subconscious and a reflection of an alternate reality. Realm of the Unconscious  is influenced by the landscapes of Dali, the compositions of Magritte’s compositions and the self-portraits of Frida; it urges the viewer to construct their own subjective narrative from it.
