Vandana Jain





"I have been primarily working with well-known corporate logos, sometimes also incorporating slogans, wrappers and packaging. I often place these elements into quasi-religious contexts, arranging logos into mandalas or creating ritualistic spaces based on ad campaigns. I am interested in examining the deep influence of corporate and consumer culture on modern life, through a contrast of hand and machine; individual and conglomerate.", says New York based artist Vandana Jain.

  4. these are delicate. love the bp symbol--so you made a flower out of gasoline! Images, of course.

    on my blog right now, i have an old sign from a very old gas station called "Pure" and it has a sort of flower pattern--i need to look it up and see if it was once, a BP affiliate. Who knows. But your beautiful images made me think of it.

    I also enjoyed what you wrote on Bibbi's post.
