In Pooja Iranna's world of art, construction and textures play the most pivotal role, giving form and meaning to her creations. Iranna uses various types of media to create lattice like structures composed of lines and forms that intersect, unite and connect in what almost resembles an architectural blueprint. The grids she builds up over her surfaces are never the same; each one seems independent and different from the other. In one work there will be toothpicks poised against pieces of wood on a textile background, depicting the omnipresent struggle between regulated order and the anarchy of chaos. In another piece, made the same year, string is used with toothpicks once again, to create a structure much like a treacherous bridge over a threatening ravine, representative of strength and frailty at the same time.
