Nature, colour coded

Nature, colour coded
The fusion of lively cityscapes and radiant yet calm nature in their purest form is something to  watch out for.  Symphony of Life, a painting exhibition displays this concept with sheer perfection.

In the words of Pablo Picasso, “…to draw, you must close your eyes and sing!”, this was the mantra followed by the artist Shuchi Khanna.

Her romance with her canvases, paper work or any other medium illustrates life in its purest form. Her latest obsessions, the lively cityscapes are resplendent with radiant and lively features of nature.

They are expressive marks with hues of copper, bronze and metallic backgrounds while her vociferous figurative seem to communicate with the viewer and lend you a virtual tour inside the inception life of the artist.

Khanna amazes her patrons with her ability to be able to bring a flip side to her paintings, which comes naturally to her. She is expressive at times and subtle at other occasions.

The artist experiments with all types of colour mediums like oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache and water proof inks.

Her surface varies from paper, canvas, acrylic sheets, walls, doors to anything she can lay her hand on.

While painting live to the tunes of Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia Shuchi received the Sanatan Kalakriti Puraskar in 2008.

Her paintings adorn the walls of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. She received the Life Time Achievement Award and a Plaque of Honour by the International Congress for Women.

She was also commissioned to paint for the British Prime Minister’s wife, Cherie Blair.

She also exhibited her art work at the Nehru Centre, London and the Tagore Centre, Berlin, being sponsored by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, in the Capital.
