Love makes the world go round. And it makes New Delhi-based artist Richa Sharma create works of art. In her debut Indian show, No More Pink, Sharma draws on her personal experiences of love to portray on canvas hope, humiliation, and failure through her mixed-media works. The paintings, sculptures and objects bring out these inherent emotions associated with the age old feeling we call love.

5 Questions with the artist, Richa Sharma

  1. Artistic Motivations “Everything around me – including my memories – motivates me to be involved in art.”
    2. Inspirations “Robert Roschenberg and Frida Kahlo. During my graduation years, I fell in love with works of Mithu Sen and they inspire me greatly as well.”
    3. On the wall at home “Mithu Sen.”
    4.  Concerns that find a place in your art “Human beings, somewhere along the way, are leaving behind the emotional bonding created with people around them. In the race to become someone and doing something big, people are suffering from diseases like anxiety and depression. I try to portray this through my works.”
    5. If not an artist, you would be…“a nobody!”

No More Pink is on display at Sakshi Salon, Mumbai (15A, Deepvan Building, 20th Khar Danda Road, Khar West) until November 28, 2015.
