Hello Womeniya Entreprenuer Desk :
Sanjukta is a well known, Mumbai based senior contemporary artist, Curator and Gallerist, Founder Owner of La Aartemisia Studio and Gallery. She is committed to the cause of fight against Cancer and Children with special needs.
Communicating with the world around her is the underlying theme of Sanjukta Arun’s creations. At one point her paintings bring to notice the environmental issues that concerns mankind, yet on the other hand, through these paintings the artist invokes memories and imaginations of the atmospheric nature that continue to inspire her, which she fears may be lost forever.
Sanjukta’s works inhabit the ambiguous line between abstraction and representation. Her paintings represent specific places and moments in time: the brief point during a sunrise when the sun fills the air with an ethereal golden glow; a break in a storm where light pierces through heavy clouds; or the sunsets sending celestial light down on the waters turning them into shimmering jewels. Although the scenes are real, but they highlight the rare moments of particular beauty, they tread a fine line between the real and the otherworldly.
When Sanjukta envisions a new painting, she focuses on points of shifting light and atmosphere as reflected in the water bodies. The interplay of atmospheric forces that make the water arrestingly beautiful—moving light, air, clouds—envelop the artist’s mind and becomes part of a visual drama that the artist translates on the canvas.
The climatic changes, the declining ecosystem as well as the damage to our landscapes have constantly tormented the artist. Aiming to inspire humanity to return to nature, the artist creates images that represent natural beauty in all its glory. By presenting an idealistic view in her works, Sanjukta urges the viewer, to preserve the source of nature’s beauty: the things that make us stop and look before continuing on our way.
Sanjukta is also guided by the Divine forces and portrays Lord Ganesha and Shakti on her canvas, which are very well appreciated by art lovers and buyers.
