Navjot’s political ideology has entwined with her creative process throughout her career. Her work, combining a variety of multidisciplinary practices, aims to generate a dialogue between the artist and viewer beyond their fixed binaries. This work uses multiple textures to depict faces which appear beyond the window ledge. Wrinkles delicately outline the face of an elderly woman, also the most distinguished figure in this painting. Her prominent features illustrate her anguished glance. Behind her is the face of a man, beyond whom are unclear figures complicating the viewers’ comprehension of the painting.
