I am Bula Bhattacharya and I was born in 1958, Baharampur, West Bengal India.

The issue of SELF/ CONSCIOUS BEING in relation to memory has been the subject of my works for some time. When memories and thoughts integrate into each other, they let a person act in a healthy and rational way. If a link is broken or chemical imbalances occur in this vital function, that same person begins to lose his/her social and psychological identity. My works Transparent Boxes depict these ideas. To construct these boxes, I used screen prints on the inner surface of plexiglass sheets and threads etc.

My recent works started to develop in this background when I was trying to understand the psychological function of a human mind. How much memory and recollection of that memory play a role in shaping our social and psychological identity.

During this quest I became interested in imaging techniques of Human Brain, like x-ray, CT scan, MRI and SPECT etc. Medical practitioners use these imaging techniques to study the functioning of Human Brain (normal as well as diseased) and to diagnose the malfunctioning. Neurologists and psychiatrists then try to understand the state of human mind through the study these computer-generated images. In my recent works I adopted these computer-generated images as part of my visual language.

I live and work in Noida, New Delhi presently.
