Shampa Sircar Das
Shampa Sircar Das did her B.F.A. (Painting) in 1993 from College of Art, New Delhi followed by M.F.A (Painting) from Jamia Millia Islamia in 1995.
The rich Indian cultural heritage and Indian Philosophy inspire Shampa’s works. The works are resplendent in symbols that are embedded in a common cultural matrix. The canvas becomes a large area of space, a void, where forms are constantly resonating, emerging out, expanding and then dissolving into it. Transience and a sense of movement in these paintings touch the viewer with the play between form and emptiness. Replete with cosmic energies and symbolisms floating all over her canvas, her works are a study in the power of the spirit within the domain of human and earthly ancestry. Shampa has participated in numerous prestigious solo & group shows.
The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
Her exhibit with us is titled Genesis, an acrylic on canvas made in the year 2021.
