Sangeeta Sagar, ‘Quartz 8’, 2016, Flat Space Art

"My work has made me aware of the subconscious mind".

Welcoming Saengeeta Sugar to the Flat Space Art family. She is a contemporary artist with a multifaceted approach that encompasses paintings (in acrylic and mixed media), drawings, watercolours and sculptures (in bronze). Sangeeta’s overarching artistic style is of pure abstract expression, which requires sheer introspection. Her work displays a vivid imagination combined with a sense of fantasy and some inspiration from the real world. She respects the technical aspect of every medium and pushes it to its limits to achieve the required end results. The goal, in any media she works with, is to attain a well-balanced composition and an aesthetically pleasing piece of work. The Quartz series has been made in a pure abstract style. Like most of her pieces, Sangeeta took inspiration from nature for her series. The result was achieved by visualising and then creating the layers of a quartz stone with different colours, hues and textures. Sangeeta has used acrylics gels, varnish and other mediums to attain a unique blend, which has created beautiful textures. Each of the following artwork is distinctive within the Quartz series. The warm colours and the golden hues have enhanced the features of this piece and given it greater complexity in its appearance. "Very happy with the result I have achieved with this painting and very proud to add it to my Quartz series" she says. The warm colours and the golden tinge have enhanced its features so beautifully that it has become not only my favourite but has many admirers. I worked step by step inspired by the previous strokes till I reached a point where I felt it right to give my acrylics paints and tools a rest. A lovely addition. We can see the quartz, rock, snow, square, stone, texture, wave, abstract expressionism, contemporary, abstract, fluid, gold, autumn, modern, mountains, and nature all in this piece. It almost looks like a map in the mountains. Burnt oranges and umbers, apricot, ginger, ochre, peach and tangerine all running through the "mountains" running like rivulets down the beige, cream off white powder grey valleys. This is an abstract piece. Contemporary.
