Art

Ashima’s artworks are the translation of her dreams and what touches her soul. That is why art to her is ‘Dream, Doodle, Design’

Life is Music Series

A body singing in unison with the music it hears. The rhythm guides the movement of the dancer as she twists and turns and takes many a leap of faith.  Seamlessly, our thoughts flow with her, shape shifting, cavorting, peaking, tumbling, all in the span of a moment. Yet, the eternal in us remains rooted; waiting for us to discover ourselves.

The Story of Every Woman

The woman in this painting is every woman. One part of her knows what she wants. She knows her dreams and the story of her soul. The story of inner battle between who we are and who are told to be. We are all strong enough to follow our inner voice.

Crush them and anarchy springs forth. Listen to their wisdom, and you live in sync with this vast cosmos we call home.

City Girl

Here we see a very stylish, young, hip, and beautiful city girl in all her downtown glory within the concrete and glass urban jungle that she calls home, with myriad inhabitants and endless streams of passersby. For literally having the whole city behind her, this woman seems woefully alone and quite lonely as everybody continues to pass by. All appear not to notice her, no matter how many hairstyles she tries on or how many trendy outfits she uses to get noticed.

Dreams are an enchanting wonderland. The gateways to our subconscious desires and longings they invite us to explore surreal landscapes dotted with magic and symbolism. The “Enchanting Wonderland” series is the result of many such explorations. Inspired by pareidolia (the tendency to find an image or meaning in a random visual) they feature inkblots and patterns that evolve and transform. The result is myriad landscapes that are surfeit with layered nuances expressing life and nature.
