Ashima’s artworks are the translation of her dreams and what touches her soul. That is why art to her is ‘Dream, Doodle, Design’
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.
The Reflections Series
“The inspiration behind the ‘The Reflections’ series stems from the human pursuit of the eternal goal, the merger with the Supreme Being. I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the attributes of the human mind and how they contribute to this pursuit. The bird represents a soaring spirit, ready to take flight, while the fish symbolizes a leap towards spirituality. The horse embodies the power to overcome hurdles, making it possible to move forward. The series is a visual representation of the eternal journey and the desire to reach a state of peace and unity. The use of symbols such as the bird, the fish, and the horse, emphasizes the idea that this journey is timeless and universal, something that is common to all of us. The paintings are meant to inspire reflection and contemplation, and to spark a deeper understanding of the human mind and its connection to the divine.”
