Shampa may like to emphasis her fascination with the basic elements of nature that that unify the earth. The actual Tattva in her visual representation is her keen sense of colour. With colours she builds her canvases. Her colours fill the void and reach out through the eyes to the nerves and inspire a quite meditative mood. The vibrant yellow and reds, the blues and whites, element and pour are juxtaposed to construct a range of hues that sedate and exhilarate almost simultaneously. Shampa counts her visual encounters in the region of Ladakh and more especially Leh as points that triggered a volley of sensations and insights. These she has captured with remarkable skill and sensitivity in the present body of artworks. With the medium of acrylic applied o­n canvases the magic of meditative heads, closed eyes, pink sensuous lotuses, tapering hands and chinese clouds, Shampa evokes a mysterious and the mystic element. Other motifs also play in her visual narratives: the shapely fish, sometimes even a playful dolphin, the written script as well the signs apparently of Buddhist origin. What is delightful to see is that the silent heads that float in a space that is dense with colour are representative of both the genders. This perhaps reinforces Shampa’s own statement regarding her art, “My works revolve around the relationship of nature and forms”. It would be interesting to see how Shampa moves from the present visual repertory which she has structured so excellently to social realities, to the political and the economical backwardness of a region so rich in natural resources, clean air, infinite solar energy, multitude of minerals, precious stones, a stark landscape, a quiet and varied population. When we leave the gallery each o­ne of us would have taken with us an experience of quiet solitude, exhilarating sense of colours, and the connectivity of the eyes with the inner nerves.

    I am very impressed with how well organized and well run the Mojarto Gallery is. I had the privilege of dealing with you through emails and mobile and what an excellent team you are! Working with you and all the Mojarto Gallery people has been a very positive experience for me. I loved the way you displayed each artists work and the smooth and clean transactions after selling the paintings.
