About the artist
Aparna uses her colours and canvas to capture the enchanting Banyan tree in its myriad forms: the roots of the tree descend from its branches and anchor it to the ground by eventually transforming into trunks while the branches move heavenward in a cosmic balance. She mainly uses acrylic colours, but in some places to build the atmosphere she uses ink too. The technique is pointillism, as she splatters paint on her canvas, layer by layer. Strokes and drippings are a part of her work too. The dripping paint looks like the roots of the tree descending from its branches.
