Discover the retrospection that an artist goes through

Delhi based Sunita Lamba is a much celebrated artist who has to her credit a gold at the Fine Arts Olympic in Beijing in 2008, apart from the numerous awards that she has got. We caught up with her at Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi, as she was busy preparing for her upcoming exhibition.

Creativity is inherent in nature. None of the forms that we see would have emerged had nature not been creative. There is an intrinsic partnership between life and nature with both supporting each other to sustain the creative process.

Having been initiated into the creativity right from my childhood, as my family encouraged such indulgences, I developed into an artist in my own right. It wasn’t professionalism but part of our cultural ethos.

I grew up in a part of India which is now Pakistan before settling down in Delhi. We were truly rooted in our environment that was not yet a concrete jungle.  Air was fresh, cities were small and there was warmth amongst people. This warmth stays with me still, as I recall the days gone by.

The lyrical forms I create in my sculptures are in essence children of nature and carry the same sensibilities. They are abstracted but not isolated from their natural or human environment. In fact, they are the product of it, created through my aesthetic sensibilities.

But these were just the beginnings. My subsequent brush with the art world educated me in the lyrical and emotive aspects of art, both in printing as well as sculpture. My learning was of course silent in the course of my creative life.

I came to believe that no art is good enough, if it does not possesses a lyrical quality and if it fails to touch our emotions. Both colour as well as the theme, as I discovered, tended to create the emotive side of an art work – a phenomenon that linked the artist, the art work and the viewer towards whom the message was projected. Hence, my paintings make sensitive use of colour to create their aesthetic appeal – an appeal that has its emotional content.

Needless to say that these humanistic qualities of my works have brought rich dividends over the years during which I have been exhibiting. And my winning a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in the year 2008 encouraged me to create works that are related to our earth and the environment around us.

Besides this, I have a penchant for working in different media – metal, digital painting, fiber glass etc which has widened my views and enhanced my palette.
