Rashmi Khurana’s current suite of paintings explores and discovers an unfettered expression guided by the tenants of intuition and experimentation. The energy of her works is divorced from earthly concerns. They delve into a metaphysical space, expressing her transient moods and moments. Over the years Rashmi has honed her mastery over painting and now her works possess a plasticity and alacrity that only arises from a deeper engagement with the discipline of painting.

Artist, Rashmi Khurana

She has realized canvases that are shorn of recognizable forms or content with a narrative element. Her work moves towards a truly abstract expression that bears the countenance of her core essence. From a wild and restless energy, she has approached a calm that comes to rest in the harmony of colors and strokes.  The dark nocturnal blooms that are born on her canvas represent a vigor that has matured and is more thought provoking. She is a silent witness to her own contemplative explorations.

“Paintings for NOCTURNAL BLOOMS are immersed in variety of vibrant colors as if moving in a circle of tremendous aliveness.Putting up this exhibition with Georgina Maddox was enriching, it was hectic yet very existential. I am grateful to the whole team of Niv for their support and encouragement,” says the artist.

Rashmi’s art has not evolved with the jargon or discipline of ‘post-modern’ or ‘contemporary’ academics, by pure virtue of her lived reality, Rashmi brings to the table a certain dialogue about her identity that is not explicit but rather intrinsic in her work.

Having established herself as an important voice among abstract painters, Rashmi is now ready to excavate deeper layers of the self, providing a space for reflection and rejuvenation through her dark nocturnal canvases that pulsate from a black surface to a fountain of colour…the journey into the self is an endless one.
