Bajaj’s work highlights people’s relationship with nature, she juxtaposes bodily forms with flowers, birds, roots of trees and branches. The artist believes in an intangible and interdependent bond that humankind has to the natural world. Her recent body of work includes the use of bird feathers, emphasizing the environmental threat the species face in a rapidly urbanised world. The artist attributes her use of feathers to the place birds have in mythology and the ritualistic use of feathers in Indigenous cultures around the world.
