Kanchan's art particularly of the last decade is the art of assertion, of the domestic centricity of feminine experience, of an iconic feminine energy, and of her easy appropriation of the idea of the mythic divine feminine. From her preoccupation with the Bhoota figures of Karnataka, tribal figures and images of the Shakti cult, she has made identifiable images of feminine power. In her later works, the presence of a child figure, toys etc. speak of the intense mother-child interdependency, whether it is in 'Vatsalya' series or the 'Fables Retold'. More recently she has worked with the female torsos, brightly painted, monumental and bedecked with sequins, silver leaf and beads. Here, there is celebration of the fertile, the erotic and the sensuousness of the female form. Luminous cerulean blues, yellows and bright reds make the surface vibrant.
