‘The inspiration for Devi’s work seems to emanate from forms and patterns found in nature. Organic designs become a language of shapes – from the geometry of her prints to the playful use of colour in her collages and illustrations. Her prints are structured, bold and compelling, whilst other pieces are whimsical and full of movement. There is a spontaneity which leads the viewer to feel that they have gate-crashed the moment of creation. This work is confident and inspired and, for me, never fails to captivate . . .’ Amanda Clark
