Madhya Pradesh, India
Seema Ghurayya was born in 1964 in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. She graduated with a Masters degree in painting from Jiwaji University, Gwalior in 1986. Seema’s paintings are an expression of her feelings and experiences rather than an effort to establish a connection and communication with the viewers. She uses light, airy colours and sparking strokes almost as if a sort of quietness and solitude has sheathed them. These colours absorb and complement the geometrical lines and figures. Seema chooses abstract and inexpressible things that cannot communicate, or do not have any form or structure like silence, lightness and freshness. Her work is representative of an effort to give expression to something intangible through her visual vocabulary. Her minimalism stands out as it reflects not only the lightness of her composition but also the courage of using the language of silence. A winner of several Indian awards, Seema has to her credit a number of solo and collective exhibitions.
