Booth #177 & #179
What attracts one most in the works of Sanju Jain is its textural part. Emotive images, weaved in, around color areas, through texture, also have a web of lines, and thus become more enchanting and engrossing.
The images have an earthiness and a certain resemblance, with the green of the grass or with various tones of dry leaves or with a hole in the tree, where birds set up their nests. Such likes; intently draw us towards them selves, to give us an intense feel of the nature and its secretive ways of conveying to us certain essential norms of understanding things.
The use of various hues in image building, at times in monochromatic manner, is soothing and is able to take the viewer instantly in its fold. One can rejoice in it and can look at a certain image in the light of the color, density and tonal variations, only to find one self in a dialogue with all the elements employed.
Over the years, she has uniquely developed her pictorial language in mixed media, where the paper pulps and other ingredients, some organic, have their own presence, overtly and subtly, signaling many moods and emotions. In this context, the textural quality of her works is also to be celebrated, as the textures thus created are not only part of a certain technic, but also signify in themselves forms and intent of a rare kind, they merge with the images and yet stand apart.
Sanju Jain with these works in the show mounted here, has come a long way indeed, offering a sense of maturity, integrity and dedication to her creative urges, and seems to be always looking forward in a quest of newer expressions.
Molding her kind of images, engulfed in their calm, and inner world of dreamy, yet indulgent energy, to collect memories and give shape to ever forming sensations of life forces is not an easy task. And one hopes that art lovers will cherish these images for a long time to come.
