“My paintings depict the strength and beauty of nature in some way or the other. We have forgotten it but we are an integral part of nature. Nature is the greatest inspiration for one to learn continuously. As a human being, I believe in overcoming all obstacles and triumphing over all adversity in the journey of life. My artworks highlight the transformation of the human spirit from bondage to freedom, from darkness to light and from the depths of despair to the pinnacle of bliss.
For me, pure bliss means being one with the universal consciousness or the supreme energy which pervades this entire universe. Like the mighty Ganges, I flow through life, through everything it has to offer“ says the renowned artist Sonali Durga Chaudhari.
“That image of the golden river flowing in front of me is imprinted in my mind, as it was just yesterday. The imprints get represented in my works seamlessly that celebrate the moods of the river,” says the artist who moves like a nomad at heart looking beyond the wonders of pristine mountains as if meandering like the Divine Ganga, recollecting the childhood days travelling to the sacred Rishikesh with her maternal grandparents.
