Jayati's artworks are a collection of reflections on everyday life, capturing elements that exist for their own sake while also serving others. They take the form of factorial poems, portraying moments of contentment and memories of being fully present in the moment. Each detail within your work presents an opportunity to tell a story, like a hidden clue or a message waiting to be discovered, offering lessons to be learned and glimpses into hidden times.
Her artworks encompass intentional and unintentional gestures, pauses, and prompts, addressing the subtle nuances that give life deeper meaning. They encourage cherishing the small moments that occur while walking obscure and isolated paths in search of solace. They represent a beauty that is not necessarily at peace, urging viewers to look beyond surface-level beauty and discover deeper truths.
