The Portrait of a Lady

Sumana Malakar

"Freedom is to live with dignity" - Manal Al-Sharif

After staying nearly 20 years in Middle East, I'm deeply touched by its heritage and culture. Hence I create this portrait which not only expresses its heritage but also a great value of the Arab culture. I never say "I capture the spirit of the soul" as the spirit can never be captured, rather it consents to show itself. "My painting is the window that looks into our true self, and doors through which we can fly into realms we so nostalgically seek".
My technique is pure abstract as I love playing with knife and paint on my canvas. Strong brush strokes and sudden impasto technique created by knife are visible in my painting.
