Angela Aujla is a contemporary visual artist, and is also a Sociology professor at Georgian College. Her narrative artwork seeks to emphasize the resilience and dignity of South Asian women, as women have traditionally had the difficult task of being the keepers and transmitters of culture, language and tradition, a task made particularly challenging in diasporic contexts. In the words of Sikh poet, Amrita Pritam, there are many stories which “are not written on paper, but are written on the bodies and minds of women.” The specific story in Angela’s work is left ambiguous, as she hopes the viewer will see something of their own story reflected in her portraits. The lines of Angela’s artwork are fluid and connected with elements that are out of place, out of proportion and fragmented, just as the self and identity are. By creating lines that are dynamic and have a lot of movement, Angela hopes her artistic style will reflect conceptions of culture, tradition, and identity being in constant re-creation and flux, rather than static and timeless.
