"Let's celebrate the beauty of land and sea"
Amrita Tandon is a contemporary artist whose work is greatly influenced by her nomadic life. She has lived across the length and breadth of India and in vibrant cities like Tokyo, Dublin, Mumbai, Sydney, Singapore and now Hong Kong, each having expanded her creative horizon.
Armed with exacting standards, creative exposure and attention to detail garnered from a career in advertising, she turned her skills to painting full-time.
Her artworks incorporate memories and musings. She constantly photographs and jots down things that pique her interest. A phrase read, the cadence of rain or the scent of a woodfire wafting on the breeze may become the jumping-off point for a new painting.What she portrays and the palette she uses are a window into her mind. By exploring different aspects of nature and man, from the mighty to the mundane, she chooses to perceive and thus convey the elation and glory of existence. Her paintings are about the pleasure of seeing, as well as finding a place and moment of quietude and connection.
