Sarla Chandra’s tryst with art and Indian culture has spanned over forty five years. Painting
for her is not merely a profession but a form of meditation; a personal expression of her love
for Indian Purani text ,like Ved,s, and Upnishads fasinates her. A compulsive inner urge for
exploration of the capabilities of the mind have slowly manifested themselves onto her
canvas.Using ‘varakh’-gold and silver foil are unorthodox techniques that recreate the aura of
our ancient cultural heritage. Sarla’s works are never static, her signature paintings are
treasured by connoisseurs of art all over the world. Her brush generates energy, drawing
inspirations from all faces of nature, and traditions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism, and
Christianity. Each of her paintings pulsates with ‘Prana’ - the life giving force, creating a
spiritual experience for the viewer.
