The visual artist Parul Gupta is in Sweden on a residency at Gallery Syster in Luleå and part of Iaspis International Cooperative Projects in Sweden.

I graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2011 with MA in Fine Art. Prior to that I was a self taught painter. A shift from painting to drawing happened there itself, when I became receptive towards my own self. Things which could go unnoticed, initially becomes the inspiration and then the part of the work – whether using fallen hair strands as a medium to define line or using the scratches – an empty pen leaves on the paper.

Another major turn in my practice came in 2012 with my participation in Sarai Reader 09 at Devi Art Foundation, India curated by RAQS media collective. My project there was site specific and process based. It was here that I began to follow a certain “line of thought” in my work, opening an inquiry into “what happens when a line leaves paper and enters space”.

From there onwards, I’ve been continuously exploring drawing in space as a form of architectural intervention and spatial explorations as site specific, temporary, ephemeral installations based on the language of line.
