THE TREE STUMP SERIES

The outer parts of the tree are thin bright coloured, playful, slender and free. These are the moments of life filled with lightness and happy moments. But they branch off from the main trunk, its backbone....


The inner core represents, the struggle, the years of longing, the crease of difficulties amongst the layers of memories. Always hidden and only revealed when the trunk becomes a stump....

ARTIST STATEMENT

Deepa says: "My ultimate inspiration has always been mother nature. The varied moods of nature and the richest palette it presents to us truly and constantly inspires me. My work is primarily abstract and minimalistic. 
While creating art, I let nature drive me as I experiment on the canvas with different materials, colours and mediums to create strokes and colour flows that are visually stimulating. Layering of colours, dripping, pouring and splashing - all are facets that are inspired by observing nature. In fact, what I truly love is the complete unknown while creating art. 
More often than not, the finished painting is a surprise even for me as I express freely while observing (or should I say taking guidance from) all the nature around me. Full flow of colours, fluid movements, random brush strokes and unique spatial combinations help me recreate nature with my own hands. Somehow, the formations make me feel like a part of nature’s magic of creation, a feeling that is very close to my heart. 
I have been immensely fortunate to have found brilliant artists whose work inspires me to do better. For instance, Jackson Pollock who was phenomenally ahead of his time in the way he used colours and form. I am also inspired by Kandinsky, truly regarded as the pioneer of European abstract art, who used colour, form and texture in an amazing manner in his non-objective work. 
Painting gives me a deep inner peace and hopefully will evoke a similar sense of calm within the viewer as well."
