Mandali: India and the World | Soumya Netrabile

Tue, 09/08/2020 - 3:05pm

When: September 8, 2020

Contributing artist Soumya Netrabile discusses her work and the effect of Covid-19 from her studio in Oak Park, Illinois.

This exhibit is in partnership with the Rasa Festival and Akshara.

Artist Statement:

My experiences and memories of perceived nature are at the center of my practice.Moving freely between abstraction and figuration, I want to explore sensations and remembrances that my mind and body have absorbed while being immersed in nature and unspoiled landscapes. My daily walks through nature, which bring me in contact with soils, plants, water and other natural elements have become a way for me to find emotional sustenance and build intimate connections through my body and senses. Working within this framework, ideas of mutation, anthromorphism, and myth play through my subconscious while I work and frequently in my dreams as well. Initially setting my thoughts on the body while I am absorbed in the act of painting helps me muse and search for formal or narrative relationships to develop. I try to maintain a sense of mystery and humor in my process.
