People and situations of her surroundings become her inspiration and when she expresses her thoughts through her canvas. In her upcoming solo show of paintings, ceramics and sketches, 23-year-old Amrit Khurana explores her habitat in such an aesthetic manner that it gets difficult to believe that she is autistic.

‘The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the hearts,’ is the concept on which her upcoming art exhibition Kaleidoscope is based. With paintings that are figurative and sculptures that are expressive, Khurana’s works are capable of holding the viewer’s attention.

“I get inspiration from what I see on TV and newspapers,” says Khurana who creates a fusion of abstracts and figures with quite an ease. Presented in a harmony using bold colours, her works have lines that are quite rhythmic in appearance and compositions that are capable of striking a chord with art aficionados.

The artist usually paints portraits and has developed a penchant for the abstract. Her ceramics are a reflection of her paintings. But it is the sublime fantasy overflowing from her works, that creates a long-lasting impact on the viewer’s mind.
