Rana-Allen questions her Indian heritage through British eyes. It is with this in mind as a cultural insider she interprets its coded behaviour relatable to both east and west. Her art describes the British-Indian female identity through biology (the external appearance of the Indian female as perceived by white society), construct (the influences on the upbringing of the female) and ideology (the lived experience and aspirations of the female). This is informed by the context of her personal life experiences as the British Indian woman, who has an Indian body (biology) a western mind (construct), constantly reminded that she is not ‘white’ (ideology). The perception of this ‘Indian body’ is explored through both practice and theory.
 
The artworks reveal Rana-Allen's personal experience of sexuality, femininity, womanhood, motherhood as artist and researcher, by embodying being Indian and British but never English.
