Utilizing themes of identity, voyeurism, and appropriation, Rudra Manani is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on photography and painting. She is interested by the mundane in everyday life, and often works from memory to create her large scale paintings. Additionally, Manani is interested in the materiality of paint, and how this can function to create ambiguity within a space. At the moment, her artwork follows two trajectories; the first of which takes a critical standpoint on the self-care industry in the West, specifically in its appropriation and fetishization of Hindu practices, and the second intends to grapple with her identity as a first generation Indian-Canadian. Manani's photography employs voyeuristic qualities to represent her internal relationship to the idea of an outsider looking inwards.
