Aradhna Tandon was born in 1952. Using oil and acrylic, the compositions chronicle her impressions almost as a diary would, unfolding imprints on a per canvas basis.

Love, Desire, Illusion, Reality, Harmony, Compassion, Meditation - Tandon’s paintings cast a 360 degree net to encompass various hues of human emotions. The artworks, employing a deft narrative of semi-figurative human forms and elements of nature, bring to life a colourful kaleidoscope of human relationship; it’s inherent drama and the overarching pursuit of the individual to attain inner harmony.

Using oil and acrylic, the compositions chronicle her impressions almost as a diary would, unfolding imprints on a per canvas basis. “Paintings for me is both an expression of my observation and a dialogue with my inner self”, she says. “It is a spontaneous exercise - a leap to freedom - unfettered of the external world.” Not surprisingly then, the art adapts to her individualistic style, refusing to conform to any dogma or -ism. The human forms too aren’t sketched to any anatomical precision – rather been granted certain distortions, they are lend a somewhat piquant, inscrutable quality.

To an art esthete, it is possible that her artworks may evoke the moody quality of Frida Kahlo or the sensibilities of French artist Louis Toffoli. But to the everyday discerning onlooker, her art speaks a simple language - one that is expressive in it’s content, profound in its treatment and human in its appeal.

The artist lives with her family in Panchkula, Haryana and paints from her personal home studio.

    Aradhna Tandon: Imagination takes a form!

    You have been living in Chandigarh for the past 30 years and painting continuously.How would you define yourself as an artist ? I have had a great bond with colours and every time I closed my eyes I would see colours. I had an art teacher in my childhood who only taught my sister and never paid attention to me. How would you describe your work and has that inspired you to take up art? How do you treat your canvas to bring out the theme you’ve chosen. I am an emotional person and very attached to things. I cannot convey a lot through words and hence I use my canvas to communicate. Do you prefer colours over forms? I like colours a lot Even your forms are a little different like the eyes or noses you paint are anatomically very different. What is it that inspires you to to do this? All of this comes from my imagination. It’s all from imagination? Or does this stem from emotions too? I definitely feel this comes from emotions and I have felt that a lot of times. How do you work as an artist? What are the textures and mediums? My medium is mostly oil colours. I also use acrylic on paper. Please tell us about some of your series I recently had the opportunity to visit a residency in a hill station in Kasauli. The hills resembled men, women and heart for me and there I hae painted nature and human emotions. Do you think one has to struggle hard to survive in the art world? I don’t know because I never had to work very hard to sell my paintings and everything was easy for me. I am 62 and the only way I can do art is by enjoying it. Is that what artists feel? Expressing yourself and enjoying? Absolutely
