About the Artist
Sunanda Khajuria is a visual artist who is deeply inspired by Chinese traditional painting techniques and draws her imagery from both the terrain of ethereal memory as well as from actual, physical landscapes she has visited. Through her psychedelic and startling dreamscapes, she attempts to create liminal spaces, capturing the experience of being ‘in transit.’ Using a lexicon of symbols, and visual metaphors, she skillfully interweaves images of transition and mobility and places them in a non-perspectival liminal space.
