Sheena’s paintings are a platform to exercise her imagination where it becomes a mode of inhabiting space. The primitive marks on the canvas provide clues to her interpersonal relationship with the world around her. It mimics how her body not only occupies space in an immediate physical reality but also how it projects and manifests an illusion of space around it. As an abstract painter, her interpretations stem from the intrinsic nature of how the painting is made. In its making, she recognizes unique meanings that transform her perception of space and time. This is her way to introspect the phenomenological process of perception and painting. The metaphysical approach to her art leads to questioning beyond our physical reality. Her latest work attempts to reflect this inquiry by creating a combination of energetic controversy and intrigue on the canvas. The spontaneous action and gestural approach is an effort at a rudimentary, primordial, and elementary expression.
Sheena lives and works in Vadodara, Gujarat, India.
