VICKY TALWAR

Idiosyncratic Expressions
July 31 – August 20, 2015
Reception: Thursday, August 6, 2015 6-8 PM

The exuberant paintings of Vicky Talwar demonstrate her learned respect for botanical coloring and her dexterous ability to render natural objects. Talwar's compositions are filled with stimulating activity and mimic dense ecosystems. The excited flow of petals and stems are arranged into new terrains reminiscent of surreal landscapes. Building from a neutral background, Talwar's palette employs colors in the shades of iron ore, forest floors, and river banks. Talwar's rich sense of contrast is informed by her formative experiences in New Delhi, India. Her vibrant floral paintings often resemble textiles in their stunning detail, and her palette examines and celebrates the cultural contexts of flowers as well as their ornate qualities.

The fantastic shapes in Talwar's paintings spool back on themselves, infusing the canvases’ surfaces with the artist’s memories of sights and scents. Calmness and tempestuousness are mutually experienced through the sinuous interplay between acrylic and mixed media. This vivid dynamic evokes personal visions of clothes and quiet gardens. Talwar’s compositions achieve abstract patterns, teaming with vitality, that spring off in different directions, spellbinding the viewer.
