Nayanaa’s work typifies the best characteristics of this genre- the air of whimsy, the flat bright polished surfaces and the extra ordinary plethora of intricately worked detail. The freshness and charm of the images she creates gives a crystalline utopian appearance to the mundane everyday life being depicted. She reflects on the charming idiosyncrasies of her subjects with a fine degree of wit and gentle satire. Her paintings depict the various faces of India- Lifestyles Past and Present-– weddings, bazaar(market) scenes , vehicles, ancient sports, beach compositions , many of which with economic growth will eventually disappear. The acute static demeanor of her portrayals lends itself to movement through the vehicles of vibrant and dynamic colors, the composition of patterns and intense details, and the gentle Indian spirit reminiscent of centuries past fusing with the invasion of modern advents and amenities.
