My artistic process unfolds in layers, starting with pastel scribbles forming geometric patterns. These initial sketches undergo a transformation through varied brushwork using opaque and transparent colors, incorporating diverse marks and linear details. This process continues until the artwork reaches a point that resonates with my vision.  Typically, I engage with multiple paintings simultaneously. They evolve gradually, with me moving back and forth between them. Some pieces take precedence, while others wait for further exploration. Throughout this journey, my fascination with the structured linearity of urban landscapes and the play of transparency and luminosity permeates the

Sarika Mehta

For the small creature Such as we The vastness is bearable Only through love” - Carl Sagan  Vast horizontal expanse of the earth meeting the immense expanse of the sky at the distant horizon is the recurrent motif that remains with you much after you have seen the recent body of works by Sarika Mehta. The sparse vegetation,the scattered float sam,the stumps of long-dead trees,the pebbly beach are the markers that highlights the immense space. In a large work the land, water and the sky troika play tricks with the eye – is it water or a mirage shimmering in the afternoon heat? so typical of the extensive flatlands of Kutch. One cannot miss the tiny hut,the only human

Sanam Narayanan

My working process stems from the organic relationship with nature. As a native of a coastal areas in Kerala, the mountain ranges have fascinated me from an early age. Hiking up and through a mountainous region can be a journey of internalization. I have been drawn to higher altitudes in a primordial sense as they have become a place of rest and internal exploration. With my background in sculpture, I am focused on the emotive instinct of spaces, which can trigger particular images or metaphors in my practice. Translating these spaces into aggregates of objects and further into two dimensions is a challenge that allows me to explore themes of sanctuary, contemplation, and solitude; instead

Persistence of faith
Mixed medium on paper
25 x 42 inches
R Magesh

The work explores the constant tension between the aspect of light and dark, good andbad, relating the contemporary to the historic and the sacred to the profane, thesignificance and history of painting as a system of representation, exposing how the materiality of paint can carry and convey meaning. Necessitating a slowed-down process of looking, the intensely worked surfaces are delicate and luminous, expanding and reforming found imagery through studied formal approaches. The work weaves multiple narratives that are based on pre existing imagery culled from a variety of sources, including early renaissance painting, film stills, personal photography, historical events and news

Avinash Chandra

"In my art, I seek to merge the vibrant essence of Indian culture with the dynamism of Western modernism. Each stroke on the canvas embodies a celebration of life, echoing the vivid hues and rhythms of my homeland. My work evolves from the heart, exploring the interplay of colors, shapes, and emotions, inviting viewers on a visual journey through the kaleidoscope of existence. Through my paintings, I strive to evoke a sense of joy, capturing the essence of cultural amalgamation and universal harmony." Chandra's paintings are characterized by their vivid use of colors and dynamic brushwork. He embraced abstraction, employing bold, sweeping strokes and a lively palette to create compositions
