Seema Kashyap’ s journey in Art is a journey of perseverance, struggle , constant learning and arriving at a signature style unique of her own - that of lines and more lines - each one following its own trajectory. But that took some time to unravel.
Her expertise on lines
The drawing on Paper, Canvas, and Collages in different mediums brings forth the exploration of lines which is the central theme of her artistic journey. The fascination for lines finds representation in many forms as she works with limitlessness quite unique. Her works show continuity of using lines in a traditional and contemporary style with the same aroma of lines. The line in its varied application - Vertical lines, Horizontal lines, Diagonal lines, Zigzag lines, Curved lines all find representation in works within geometrical forms existing independently as well as coexisting within composition. There are forms which take their own identity,non-identifiable in a physical realm but at complete ease in the work. The texture undergoes constant treatment to arrive at points of the contemporary look.
Use of varied colour tones
There is both strong and soft colour coding to define her work. The large canvases and collages giveher freedom to work in many dimensions at the same time. Also what is remarkable in these works is of constant experimentation of newer techniques including modern technology to further diversify her understanding of the subject and in her case lines specially.
She touches mythological themes as well as todays raising topics of the society. Feelings and strong relationships are showcased in highly decorative way in her paintings. She says, her paintings are her unwritten, unspoken expressions of herself.
