She says "My work is a “Time Machine” where the memory of Past and the experience of Present come together. I Believe, we never forget our past and we hold our present and focus on our Future just according to what we have experienced in the past."
With humor, subtlety and irony she points out the inconsistencies and contradictions of our current world. Characters from the past come into her work and create a “drama”, give a message or “question” our present society.
The loneliness of modern man, Indo-Pakistani relationships, a woman’s place in society, are the subjects chosen by Jignasha.
Most of the backgrounds that Ojha uses for her works of art possess a quality akin to traditional Indian decorative textiles, making it appear as though the smaller, more intricate pictorial composition contained within the background has been mounted upon a printed fabric with ornamental motifs.
