It is a confluence of influences – from our modern world and nature to archaic and tribal art, that encourages Nivedita to lend her figures more structure and ultimately set her on the path towards Surrealism, in which she has deconstructed the conventions of perspective that has dominated painting since long. She often arranges additional objects around the central figure that seem discordant with the setting and contribute to the surreal, dreamlike mood of the image.
Nivedita’s work displays her vision of natural world composed of cones, spheres, or cylinders as the basis for a distinctive approach that also accommodates the mechanized forms of the modern world. Her idiosyncratic analytic approach has become a vital part of its aesthetic and theoretical explorations. Many of her works are full of astonishing, automated, compulsive, and practically cinematic stutter effects.
