In Radhika Hamlai’s recent engagement with her work, she has moved towards a response to the widespread anxiety about humanity’s increasingly discordant relationship with the world and the accompanying lost feelings of authenticity and spirituality as a result of the Pandemic. This naturally led to a huge shift in her emotional terrain. Her work however does not reflect that sense of despondency rather it is strong and defiant, filled with energy and her approach is quite experimental in nature. This body of work encapsulates clay, monoprint, and painting. Her works have always been imbued with content that articulates itself through a range of styles that evolve from the semi-figurative to the highly abstract expressionist work. Over time she searches for forms of expression and this has led her to create her vocabulary as an artist. Her works, the product of a journey through self-expression combine research on
textile, light, color, value, movement with an understanding of lines and forms as a means of exploring the human psyche, and herself.
