In her words:
This exhibition is inspired by architecture & landscape. I work in abstract and realism style. With an architecture background my work is influenced by structure side of it, interested in light, form and color. Realism style influenced by my profession as a Landscape Designer. My paintings are a personal expression of this duality.
My process begins with a series of sketches of landscapes or places or objects. Each composition is enlarged & refined using graphite on canvas. Acrylic colors are used in layers to create different planes, patterns & textures. Coming from India, a country of vibrant colors! I was always inspired by bright, colorful festivals, dresses. I try to capture that vibrancy in my paintings.
Spontaneity, unpredictability and self-discovery in making the art work constantly excites me!
