About the painting:
Howard Hodgkin had an infatuation with India, he traveled to India over 30 times in his life. Hodgkin would sit in Banganga Tank next to the water, watching people wearing colourful Saris sitting in a row, lilac, pink, orange, and yellow in between; these colours and forms in his memories would then seep into his paintings when he later painted in the studio.
Here is one of the new works, inspired by Hodgkin which started my latest collection- Spring Cats and Sunny Factory.

About Spring Exhibition Series:
" What these paintings of the Spring Exhibition Series try to do is to push impressionism forward toward Matisse; having a very daring courtship with colours and the simplicity of lines and forms, then to move even further closer to the language of Howard Hodgkin, making my new works under this lineage of less about the realistic representation, much more about the colours and its meaning behind the brushstrokes, to celebrate the power of imaginary spaces.
These two masters, Matisse and Hodgkin are at the two ends of the dial, and in between is my playground for this new Series.
I didn’t know where to start nor end and that is the beauty of it;
the Start and the End of this major Spring Exhibition are the in-between chapters, the artworks that come before and after would continue to take this series forward.
For now, in this period, I have curated 11 works telling a chapter of Spring Story " ---
