About the artwork
"There has always existed a gender binary in the mainstream which now seems to be challenged with the increased acceptance of gender fluidity on the spectrum. In today's world with the advent of dating apps and the accessibility it offers, sex has become more commonplace. This has led to different forms of sexuality being explored in diverse contexts. I see a future where all genders are one and interconnected. So much so that all genders can be transversed which is captured in a way as brought out in such pieces." - Nachiket Prakash
