The process of painting for her is a deep exploration into the mesmeric language of abstraction which begins with elaborate plans, colour schemes and compositions. To find the moments of perfect impulse she needs a foundation of planning to begin with. After which Tarini creates scenarios and problems which only she can solve, she builds structures and simultaneously obliterates them, she intuitively layers paint exposing and covering marks. While painting she relishes the struggle to maintain control while anticipating that beauty which comes from the impulsive, the moment in which a single stroke can be perfect in its imperfection. She works with slowness, complete awareness, and constant reflection. She enjoys the paradox of her art where impulse and control, calm and chaos go hand In hand. Tarini explores the ideas of memory, stillness, space and restraint in her works through sensuous, Luscious and often intuitive marks.

Tarini Ahuja (b.1990, India) was born and raised in New Delhi, India. She pursued her undergraduate studies at Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore and graduated with a B.A. (Honors) in Fine Arts from Goldsmith’s, University of London in 2013. On graduating she moved back to her hometown – New Delhi. The drastic change in landscape has led her work to move from pristine whites, clerical greys, sensitive blues and garden greens to dusty, earthy shades, chaotic hues and dramatic contrasts. Along with being aesthetically pleasing, Tarini Ahuja’s work provides the viewer with a sense of positivity and peace. She aims to create, through her paintings a space for solace and reflection, an escape from the mundane. Her handling of paint is intended to cause an effect of puzzlement to the viewer, the colour usage, and the contrast between thick and thin along with the use of shadows is a deliberate visual trickery. She uses acrylic paints as she feels it is a versatile medium and allows her to experiment with the materiality of the paint. She plays with the notions of illusion in painting and projects a whimsical feel through her works. The Japanese idea of ‘Ma’ plays an important role in her aesthetic. Ma can be roughly translated as gap, pause or the space in between. The concept of Ma is a powerful concept with many faces and layers it routes from the philosophies of Taoism and Buddhism.
