At home with Amrit

 

We visited Amrit in her Bed Sty apartment on a grey December morning. Trying to catch a glimpse of her natural personality the space she lives in and her body of work. Amrit Singh Sandhu, born in India, currently lives in New York. She primarily works with oil, gouache and watercolors. Trained as a realistic painter, her curiosity took her to experiment with modernism and abstraction to challenge and expand her creativity. Her work revolves around the idea of memory and exploring how everyone has their own unique version of reality. Through the invented characters in her oil paintings with enhanced expressions, she intends to question her perception and reflect on her own inner thoughts and emotions about the people, culture and structures in her society.
