Archana's Art Work

-By V.Subramaniyam

"Archana Yadav is an Expressionist, who works with forms through the variation of hues and contrast..."

"....Her artistic landscape generously encompasses her philosophy of life and can be explained and understood in terms of emotions and feelings...."

"....The understanding has to be transformed to state of insight. The intense stimulating quality of Archana’s work is both soothing and contemplative and strives to establish contact with one’s true self...."

"....Her work captures her varied moods imbued with a sensitive touch of her own beautiful world of feelings, thoughts and an urge to explore peace and serenity from the outer world...."

"...Here is a work that covered a long way through
number of stages preceded by colorful abstract, geometrical composition and now going towards minimalism that comes from maturity as she is growing and maturing as an artist...."

"....She feels strongly that art has a task of its own to accomplish service of imaginative life...."

"....White clouds, water, extreme cloud, and extreme heat: these belong to the kingdom of white...."

"...Is light white?

Archana seems to dwell on that question...."

"....Light, equated with white reflects the purity of the desert, the leveling down of multiplicity...."

"...White symbolizes the unity of colors...."

"....She has not removed the colors from her palette, only covered it, compressed, underneath...."

".....Her lucid precision is with regard to the field of canvas, where the limitless reach of the inner space is manifested, and an invitation to swim in infinity is proposed...."

"...The work displayed here is showing her inner messes of thoughts through some dark forms and the light forms, which signals her ambition to go beyond infinity..."

"...By implanting a fully sensuous volume to the white, dwelling on harmonic order shows the desire of seeking infinite space."

About me

I grew up with colours, brushes and paintings, as my dad is an artist by hobby. So I never felt uncomfortable with brush and canvas from my childhood. I began my work with realistic art and painted realism for many years. After completing formal education I completed my formal initiation into the world of art by obtaining a masters' degree in fine art from a government college, Bhopal.

Gradually as I got more involved in my work and started exploring the depths, my work was no more dependent on shapes and sizes - I had stepped into the world of Abstractism. My work is about inner resonance of feelings and there reflections that brings out the forms and rhythmic symphony of hues and colors.

For me painting is very internal and personal. It's a communication by the medium of emotions that establishes a fine balance between forms and heartfelt hand strokes. I love to work on canvas as it attracts me to communicate with it. My conversation with the canvas continues until I reach the pinnacle of thoughts. There has been nothing between my canvas, and me sometime it has been me and sometime it has been canvas, controlling the forms and shape of work. The process is so natural and I make no pretensions of showing my emotions and feelings through my art, but I do not stop these from emerging either.
