Gallery Space presents an exhibition of paintings by renowned artist Suruchi Jamkar . Her 27th solo exhibition showcases 30 paintings in Oil and acryllics on canvas. They depict the reaction of an imaginative mind to several visually and spiritually stimulating places and experiences.These myriad impressions and artistic meditations are experienced through her travels. “ Every journey is an exploration – be it travelling to a remote pottery village, a nearby spiritual place or an inward journey towards your childhood memories. Now is the time to lie back, explore and enjoy,” says Suruchi. It is this creativity inspired by her memories and musings that has found expression on her canvases. Sculptures of Hampi, deserts of Rajasthan and the starlit skies are predominant backdrops of her works

The use of earthen monochromatic colours fusing with the vibrant bright ones and her unique style which is very narrative and appealing conveys her story most eloquently. Dry brushing interspersed with thick knife application of oil paints gives a convincing depth to her works. Suruchi and her iconic women wearing turbans, are a visual treat. They come across as strong yet beautiful, contemplative yet ethereal. At times they are relaxing amidst nature, using rocks to recline on. Under the starlit skies one experiences the eternity and tranquility of life. Suruchi ’s paintings create the feeling of languorous comfort and easy pace,away from the rush of the rat race outside. You are invited to come and be a part of her rich and peaceful world.
