Dr. Purnima Gupta
I am a simple person, who loves to explore new things. I have been painting for almost ten years. My interest has been with developing faces and figures with a lot of texture.
I have been experimenting with all kinds of media, be it clay, glass, textile, pebbles etc. I like putting in a lot of textures in my work . I don't plan a layout, and just go with my instincts to apply colours or texture.
I was very impressed with Lucas' famous story "The Face on the Wall" and keep finding a face here and there in the texture surface I create.
I like vibrant colours, which I probably imbibe from the bright coloured attire, women in India wear.
