Sarla Chandra

Sarla Chandra is a science post graduate in entemology from St. John’s College, Agra, India. Her paintings are a form of meditation and a personal expression of her love for Indian philosophy, culture and mythology. Sarla has experimented with different mediums to capture the essence of spirituality – oil, watercolours, metal embossing, parchment, bark from trees, handmade silver and gold foil. Her use of gold and silver foil on canvas is an unorthodox technique that recreates the aura of her ancient cultural heritage. Lavanya (decoration) Gati (rhythm) are some of the finer elements of her stylization. Her works are never static; every form or delineation can be said to pulsate with Prana speaking through natural elements.
