Transitions exist in nature, beautiful and violent. Ends make way for new beginnings; destruction yields regeneration; life necessarily transitions to death; and out of seemingly nothing, springs forth majestic life. This series represent the transitions that exist is nature, seasonal and universal.
“Puratanta ka yeh nirrmok sehan karti na prakriti pal ek, nitya nutanta ka anand kiye hai parivartan main tek” – Jayashankar Prasad, Kamayani
These words of wisdom from the legendary Indian poet, Jayashankar Prasad roughly translates into “ Driven by the joy of experiencing what is new, nature sheds the old like snake skin.”
With these words echoing in our minds if we look around, we realize that everything changes—seasons to culture, people to emotions. After all how boring the world would have been if people, civilizations, seasons and emotions had been the same?
With change being the only constant undoubtedly it affects Energies too. From the smallest transaction in terms of action and reaction to the sublime Yin and Yan, this volatile paradigm operates on a reciprocal basis. Love breeds love and hate gets more of it. In this series Transition/Energy, which is her largest collection with nine, varied canvases, Nanda Khiara exhorts us to shed the old for new and take control of our energies as it gets us the same.
Titled Transition, Energy of Life, Renaissance-The Passionate Journey, Spring, Autumn, Summer, Winter and Buddha Dreams she treads cautiously & precariously balancing these two topics which are open to various interpretations. From her canvas ‘Transition’ that apprehends the thought of energies bouncing back between us and the universe to her four canvass where from generous splash of colors to their restrained use, she strives to capture not the manifestation of the four seasons but their inherent soul, she accomplishes the journey with aplomb. Apart from her unusual technique and unique style, this is the only series, which unlike her previous two has no commonalty between colors.
After all, didn’t we tell you that change is the only constant?
