Venus Sanghvi



Driven by her passion Venus pursued her Masters in Fine Arts from San Francisco, United States post accomplishing her bachelors in Commerce. Talking about her journey she comments, “it was purely my passion that has driven me and got me here, so far, and although I haven’t reached my goal, I am still working towards it, tenaciously.”


Earth Song by Venus Sanghvi

Her artistic creations expresses the semantic of congruity, hidden or revealed, in the esoteric layers to form cadenced patterns and designs. The corrugations, crimples and striations on the surface interplay and a tranquil serenity emanates, allowing the viewers to let their imagination yonder & create their own narrative. She has exhibited in numerous shows around the world.

Unveiling our rendezvous with Venus Sanghvi


A. How many years you have been in the field of art and why?

For almost a decade, I have worked as a visual artist. Painting is a never-ending exploration of various techniques applied to the flat surface of my canvas. I've always been aware of the importance of creativity believing that it heals, nurtures, stimulates. My pieces have the movement in them with brushstrokes, layers, textures which shapes up the painting thusmaneuvering the viewer's eye to the significances of it. A newseries of paintings emerge as a result of the distinctive process.

 

B. What media you have been using so far?

I have worked in many mediums – oil, acrylics, charcoal, ceramics, pastels, encaustics. My favorite being Oil and Encaustics however I also have started working in acrylics. I also use paper, wood, cloth, metal etc for my installation work.


C. What media you are planning to explore in the future?

I'm always experimenting with new tools and techniques. I plan to incorporate lithography, linocut, etching, the printmaking techniques, in my future works. I like to try out new mediums that I've never worked with before. Recently I started to work with ceramics, I find it to be a fascinating medium since it has energy, vitality, texture, and warmth because we use our barehands, i.e. touch, to produce energy. 

I am also working with installations and my first curatorial installation work ‘Carpet of Happiness’ is on display. I have used hessian cloth, cord, cloth canvas, mirror etc to create the installation.  


D. What kind of uniqueness you spotlight using your art?

My artworks, are poems with abstraction of colors, shapes, scripts, aesmic text and words Every series, it goes beyond the constrictions of genre to instill a new style as each series is something she has experienced, learnt or seen during my travels or interactions. The color usage and application are proficient and judicious enough to break the monotonous patterns of manner of thinking. That is why the viewer always sees something new, undetermined and different without any coincidences. They enjoy the sensation of being whisked away into magical alchemy.
