In time when our attention is dominated by the hustle and bustle of city and the day just spent on strategy, meeting and managing issues, anything that takes us back to nature will not only be relieving but rejuvenating.
I am happy that 6 years ago I started birding as a hobby and have been able to watch nature close up. Birding has given me a sense of balance and completely a different perspective to life.
This has taken me to so many places, to meet many wonderful people and the best of all the joy of being up close to the nature, to witness some of the wonders of God’s creation.
I feel I still have “many mountains to climb” and yet to capture my best image. You may see my photographs at www.catchyimages.smugmug.com
Painting came to me at a stage in life where I had the time and the ability to explore various creative mediums. Leaving the corporate world after 16 years was fiercely fearful in itself. Trying to keep myself happily involved yet the creative satisfaction was primary. I’ve been a very creative person from the beginning, toying with needlework, croquet, embroidery and fabric painting has been part of growing up. Always enjoyed the satisfaction that a completed piece brings to the creator. So once the opportunity for oil painting knocked my doors I grabbed it with both hands.
I would call myself a trained artist who has some natural abilities which have been enhanced and sharpened. Feel blessed and happy that I could realize my talent and had the platform to explore it further. Painting has been with me since last 4-5 years only, so I would like to believe I am still a learner.
My subjects are totally based on what appeals to me and what I would like to see around me. The purpose of each canvas has been to explore a different technique each time. Pure oils to blending oils and acrylics is been the staple. Have been inspired by a few European and Vietnamese painters as well.

To practice any painting, no matter how well or badly, we always start with still life …..this is the only way to make our soul grow. These paintings seem to be easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you start doing it. It relaxes my mind to paint fruits. I do not bring to it the same tension of spirit as when am in front of an object. When I paint fruits with jugs and the table linen. I arrange the tones. I try out different values boldly without worrying about wasting a canvas.

Nisha Gupta moved to Jakarta, Indonesia as a trailing spouse with her family having spent over a decade working as a consultant in corporate America. She came to art unexpectedly about a year ago. Having spent several hours in traffic heavy Jakarta during her daily commutes, she started to sketch in the car to break the monotony. From sketching in the car as a worthwhile pastime and encouragement from her art-inclined friends, she continued her artistic journey into more innovative mediums such as water colors and oils. Her most recent discovery has been acrylics using the palette knife. Being self-taught curious artist with no prior training, she has yet so much to learn. Poverty and hardship is something that reminds us daily here in Jakarta, and Nisha wishes to give back to the community using her passion in art.
Rashi Sharda is an artist who venerates creativity across multiple forms, genres and media. Her upbringing in the beautiful city of Jaipur, amidst an art-loving family has had a deep impact on her personality, beliefs, and philosophy. Rashi’s professional proficiency at classical Indian singing, musical instruments and dance forms play a big role in rendering the art-form which she loves the most: Painting!
Rashi has lived in cities like Jaipur, Bandung and Jakarta and has travelled to countless more, often observing the universal attributes that connect humanity across civilisations. She is intrigued by the common denominator that distils across myriad cultures and philosophies of the world and tries to render her understanding of the universally primal conditions of the human way of life in her artworks.
For this exhibition, Rashi is projecting her thoughts on Sufi cults originating in Turkey and their representations in Rumi’s masterpieces . She has used aboriginal dot painting technique of Australian origin which she picked up in Indonesia, to literally connect the dots that the Turkish dervishes emulate with their circular dance form. She has tried to bring forth the use of a mathematically stable circle to form spiritually eccentric spirals that are prolifically observed in Turkish Sufism. Concept of titles with Indian etymology on display offers the perfect melange of cultures that she herself represents.
Rashi has a bachelors degree in fine arts from Jaipur and enjoys working in oils , acrylics , watercolors , charcoal , pens and exploring new mediums.
