All India South Central Zone Certificate for Sculpture (2004) Suruchi Andhare-Jamkar, has held several exhibitions in many cities of India in the last few years. An Explorer by nature has travelled extensively through Laddakh, Rajasthan, Europe, South and East Asia and India. Her 25 th solo show depicts the artist's journey into the human psyche and her relation with life. Her paintings embody images from the external world as well as real and surreal impressions and expressions from the mysterious realms of human imagination. In her own words the artist talks about her present series.

A Tale of Eternity and Tranquility I started work on this series in 2008. I was living in Rajasthan at that time. The aridity and the distinctly visible horizon of the desert, the clear skies and the colorful turbans worn by the men, are the elements which I used in my works. In my paintings though I made the women wear the turbans. The turban symbolizes the 'thinking mode of the mind'. My women take their own decisions; take on what life throws at them on their own terms. Their poses are relaxed, they are comfortable with their existence and are at peace. They indulge in small pleasures like playing marbles, or admiring the starry nights. A little message that finally happiness is amidst nature, is subtly conveyed to the viewer. I used to play a lot of marbles when I was a child. To me they symbolize 'little pleasures in life'. The Ancient Design I travel, I like to see places, especially my motherland, with its deserts, rainforests, Himalayas, fields, rocks and history and culture. There are subjects for an artist strewn all around. One just has to take notice! I have been to Hampi, Badami, Somnathpura. These inspired me to do this series which I titled 'The Ancient Design' th

I went to Hampi first and what captured my attention was the ambience of this 14 century place. It revolved around the Divine, there are temples with their weathered 'mandapas', adorned with gods and goddesses, deities and demi gods. The first works I did after coming were 'exploring the divine' where I have shown humanity exploring the concept of god. Then there where the little decorative patterns adorning the pillars of the temples, I found them really fascinating! And thus the series 'ancient design' took birth.
