About Artist

F. Tarannum’s Profile It has been well said that one of the sure tests of artistic talent is the evidence of not only continuing, but also ever intensified singularity. I believe that I’m not putting myself at risk by opening that Tarannum seems for the moment to foot this bill. Her work, increasingly so, embodies a fine degree of clarity, precision, and sharp, salient detail. I personally rejoice that during the last few years she has by slow but persistent application in the face of adversity, groomed her work—in line with abstraction –to a near flawless visual, clear –sounding music. The handling of the variegated colours is subtle. She steers clear of muddiness and squalor in the oil medium such as is observed in the compositions of many an art contender. The treatment of the overall work is so judicious, the various hues so well blend that our eyes cannot but dote and linger on the grain and texture of the genre. - Keshav Malik Like Mark Rothko, Tarannum will quote Piet Mondrian and Franz Kline, Leger and Gauguin and our very own Gaitonde. In each and every one of these high priests of abstraction, Tarannum finds a reiteration of her feelings as she stands facing a canvas, brush in hand. The multihued palette trails behind as her imagination races ahead, filling her mind's eye with imprints buried deep in her recollection. Fascinating images emerge then, to fill the rectangular theatres of colour. Forceful, confident, vigorous, voluble - the paintings, much like the artist herself, infect you with their eloquent exuberance. Architecture is not the mainstay of Tarannum's work, but the elements she derives from the discipline instill confidence into her composition. For one, they spell out that there is a design behind the hurly burly of paints. The break up of space is by no means an accident, you can discern. However, the whiff of architecture in the rich tapestry of colours is just one of the influences on Tarannum. Poetry is another, and perhaps a more potent stimulant. Faiz, Rumi, and Shakespeare, "they add to my confidence," she confides, "for, the poets unravel the mystery that is the thoughts of people!" - Ratnottama Sengupta
