I happened to witness a solar eclipse recently. How magnificent is its effect on Earth! It changes and manipulates the gap between shadows and the sun and becomes a different visual experience! Through this series of work, I am trying to bring out the visual feeling of an eclipse. How the eyes ache to see the brighter part while combining the intense nature of an eclipse through the patterns of warp and weft. The Eclipse is being used here as a metaphor to amalgamate with the expanse of something infinite. My ideas have close associations with natural phenomena or elements, such as a sea or an ocean.

The major factor is their expanse which is similar to the weave of a textile.
