Paintings By Price
The imagery in Suruchi’s paintings involves ‘Girl with a turban’ , ‘Reclining figures under the starlit skies’, ‘ friends playing a game of marbles’ , ‘sculptures from ancient temples’ and numerous creative portraits of vibrant women.
The use of earthen monochromatic colours at times fusing with the vibrant bright ones and her unique style which is very narrative and appealing, it conveys her story most eloquently. Dry brushing and at times thick knife application of oil paints gives a convincing depth and vibrancy to her works.
These techniques have helped her create the feeling of languorous comfort and easy pace, away from the rush of the rat race outside.
“The game of marbles takes me back to my childhood memories of lazy and quaint afternoons spent
with friends, the focus being the small orbs filled with colour and fun. It emphasizes on the little
pleasures in life” says Suruchi.
The girl in a turban symbolizes a strong and yet sensitive woman who takes on life at her own terms, this painting shows how our minds are perpetually weaving thoughts and how you find that your thoughts actually become you.
