Artist Anupama Jain
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The process of creating art is unrestrained and unplanned for me. I work in an almost meditative state and allow my tools and materials to create lines, shapes and colors spontaneously. As the piece progresses and the feelings and emotions within me are given release onto my canvas, I am later able to engage conscious thought and carry the piece into its final state.
‘Nrityangana’ or ‘the Dancer’ is an attempt to capture the essence of the Indian classical dance known as Bharat Natyam. I always thought this dance was a beautiful amalgamation of strength, grace and emotion. Its fluid movements are captivating and the stories and messages conveyed add depth to this art form.
