A seven part painting which mixes Indian and European art histories. In March 2019 I was invited to an art residency in Tirupati, a pilgrimage town in Southern India below the famous hilltop temple. The residency was set up as an exchange of practice between artists from India and the UK, an idea I carried on with back home during the first Lockdown.
