The Real Velvet Bindia
Artist Notes
It all started with a packet of bindis.
The holy dot or bindi is worn by young Hindu girls and women on their forehead and signifies female energy. It can also be used as a form of personal expression.
The concept attempts to illustrate how the bindi can represent an individual identifying with the world to communicate different feelings and influences at different times, drawing together both Indian and English culture that can involve conflicting attitudes and behaviours.

The Process
Photography & Collage using found antique newspapers, ephemera and imported Indian bindis.
