Exuberant and challenging, full of sex, abjection, beauty, and dazzling, intricate detail, Chitra Ganesh’s wide-ranging works are focused on the marginalized and excluded figures and narratives in art, history, and literature.

In her works, she presents alternative narratives, in which women possess a dangerous sexuality and are invested with strength and power.
