Artist Profile

‚Äč

Shan Re is one of the most versatile artists of the country. She is a dynamic and prolific artist and is seen actively involved in many fundraising art shows & auctions. She mesmerizes the audience with her spontaneous live painting on various occasions. The intensity and frequency of her creative output is enormous.
 

Intuitively moving between mediums Shan has continuously evolved, experimented and explored a wide array of subjects and genres in several group and solo shows in India and abroad. Shan’s art practice involves various disciplines from drawing, painting, poetry, sculpture and installations. Her works are in prominent public and private collections. Shan lives and works in Bangalore.
 

Shan’s paintings are a spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings and emotions recollected in tranquility. Shan looks within a world of emotional and psychological states rather than without to a fluid world of fleeting realism. She explores her mind, spirit and imagination to germinate imagery. Thus free from representational convention Shan Re’s process and philosophy make her works ‘timeless’ – independent of time and space.
 

Shan says... 

 

“Listening to the quite voice within me...

Exploring infinite dimensions within myself...

Standing on the thresh hold of new experience...

I have been painting 

The Canvas of my life...

Drop by drop...word by word..

To unwrap my own destiny...

Passion flows through me 

Like a stream of colour

In the flames of passion

I create breathtakingly 

Beautiful masterpieces 

From the deep sea of mystery

Somewhere between 

Memories and fantasies 

Between echoes of silence 

and  hope... I am intoxicated 

and addicted to the power creativity...

My inner fire is what keeps me going"
