Sharmin Varghese
About the work and the artist

From a write up

Sharmin Varghese, artist and writer, is a woman whose feminine energy is evident in her works. An artist who believes in the politics of expression. Sharmin voices her dissatisfaction over the state of things (that are largely define by the narrow cultural mindset), without restraints, but with calm knowingness.

About the work

On the many imageries within her works, Sharmin notes that the planting of certain images is not a deliberate and conscious act.
"I don't consciously think this part should be here of there", she says, "I like it when the viewers get different things (interpretations) from it."

Conceptual thought

... to get back the intuition, energies, and it is also about forgiveness - letting go of past hurts, Sharmin summarises.
"A lot of energy has gone into these paintings. OF course, it could be shown in other ways, but I've decided to show it in this way", says the artist.
