My Story

Soothing for the eyes, comforting for the mind are the dreamy abstracts of Upasana Goenka. Enthralling the viewer by its colours, the sfumatic abstracts portray hidden landscapes. Her artworks are a by product of the transforming landscapes in her surroundings due to constant migration from cities and countries for education. Nature never fails to astonish one. This fascination for nature inspired her to pick up the pencil and start her journey in the world of art at the tender age of four. A documentary about Picasso enhanced her passion, her hobby which she decided to turn it into profession. “Art is the elimination of the unnecessary “ a statement by Picasso prompted her to pursue abstraction. “That is the purest form of expression,” she says.


Through her brushstrokes she captures the spontaneity in nature. Working in many layers, she expresses her feelings and creates the mood of the painting. Believing in Mark Rothko’s style of colourfield painting, the emphasis on strong formal elements of colour, balance, depth are reflected in her artworks. Her work resonates with a statement by artist Lucien Freud who said, ”The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and ironically, more real.” The definite forms in her initial landscapes starts vanishing eventually with practice. Her artworks are patches of colours juxtaposed on the canvas which attracts the human eye. Upasana works mainly with acrylic colours but she is an avid experimenter. Competent in handling various materials and mediums, she confidently plays on the canvas. She paints what she feels not what she sees. These meditative works of Upasana catches the eye and takes one in deeper consciousness. By showcasing her collection, she wants the audience to feel the emotions expressed through the artworks.
