The things left unsaid

The things left unsaid
Kanodia explores how ideas flow and  senses come alive when a man becomes one with nature in her latest venture The Great Outdoors. Her body of work shows the close bond man has with nature.

A union that helps him regain his lost innocence, enjoying a solace that can be derived from the peace and quiet of nature.

There are a number of  paintings set with indoors trees, foliage and birds which are skillfully integrated.   

‘The conversation I hope to create in my work is a certain truth of life and on a deeper level, a well thought philosophy. I construct fantastic versions of accessible scenes, both rural and urban utopias.

Individuals may interpret my paintings in vastly disparate ways and each view will be equally logical and plausible, thought provoking and intriguing’, concedes the artist.

There are several layers in Kanodia’s paintings. Her narrative uses colour, intricate patterns and humor to create alluring images. Time plays an integral part in her paintings as she has managed to capture a moment. Her work is a salient artistic combination of a still life composition with a message.

She is a painter of women who are on the cusp of telling their story. The woman on the bicycle  opens up a pastoral picture of married life with a dog that brings a smile to the face. It is an interesting mixture of East and West, the open umbrella accentuating the lure of the woman.

Still life compositions of domestic middle class interiors with a collection of flowers are an interesting oddity when put in context of soulful women in saris. It is as if two genres work successfully side by side, a surprise at every turn of the page.
