Nalini Malani (born 1946) emerged in the late -1960s when the Indian art scene was male dominated. Amongst a new generation of women artists who wove personal narratives and histories into their practice, her early works were cathartic autobiographies.

The female protagonists of her paintings expressively negotiate family relationships by showing previously unexposed family dynamics including female rebellion and isolation within a patriarchal society. With a focus on the body, interaction and layering become a metaphor to illustrate the complexities of Indian society and the emotions they elicit: oppression, anxiety, self-absorption and anger.
