Nandita Chaudhuri

Profile

Nandita Chaudhuri Nandita Chaudhuri produces works that are distinctly non-conformist. Her works are mostly abstract with a strong emotional element. She believes in breaking free of pre-conceived definitions and stereotyped compartmentalization. Her works often have an ephemeral yet bold quality. More recently, she has stripped the narrative to a more raw abstract physicality in expression. Her works have a distinct transnational context rich in texture and residual by-product. Her works have been selected for several auctions, The Saatchi Gallery, The Royal Academy, Museums and Outdoor installations in London. Predominantly a painter, Nandita has also been working with installation & art films based in London and Mumbai.

ARTIST STATEMENT

There is always a surface and depth in all transactions. It is through archeological incisions that we can dig deeper behind veneers to perceive elusive and invisible entities. There is an endeavor to plot that graph and excavate mysteries trapped within multi-surfaces.
