Arpita Singh | Biography | Life | Artworks
Her organization of space is in a psychological sense rather than the physical. Colored forms float around as independent elements.
She seems to filter the fluid images of her consciousness and makes them visible—a dream-like the situation, familiar and tangible with an enchanting decorative effect enriched with col- our and texture. There are visions of fantasies and surreal surprises.
Sometimes a humorous expression and sometimes a nightmarish feeling seems to pervade the entire canvas with absurd synchronized movements and gestures and multiplicity of motifs typical of the urban situation.

There are guns, cars, airplanes and portrait heads or busts. Her obsession with repeating motifs may have some significance for her. Perhaps they hold for her different meanings at different times.

Weaving all this material around stories and events; men groping, grappling, crouching, sleeping and even ‘dying out there’, she has created highly captivating imagery.
Her recent works, however, show dressed-up men and naked women as in A Tree, A Man, and A Woman and Aftermath, or The Naked Mother with a Girl-child.

The paneled spaces on the sides, in some, are used to accommodate figurative elements related to the main theme: a characteristic compositional device.
The thick paint moving along with the gesture of her brush in a certain rhythm lends a quality of vibrancy to her paintings.
