About Me

Sheena Bajaria was born in Vadodara, India. She completed her BFA from Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore, 2017. 

She works in acrylic paints, spray, soft pastel and uses sticks, sponges, and rocks to create impressions. Her works are a collage of impasto doodles, dots, scribbles, scratches and occasional biomorphic forms that float on an atmospheric background. The mark making system allows her to explore the subject of visibility; appearance and recognition. Painting to her is a way of extracting the essential features of what we experience, where the invisible becomes visible. The marks in her painting provide her with clues on how embodied subjects inhabit space. The establishment and recognition of one form from another leads to inquiry beyond the physical reality. She aspires to make a connection between the significance of making a painting and the aesthetic form.

Artist Statement

I think of my paintings as a platform to exercise my imagination where it becomes a mode of inhabiting space. The primitive marks on the canvas provide clues to my interpersonal relationship with the world around me. It mimics how my body not only occupies space in an immediate physical reality but also how it projects and manifests an illusion of space around it. 

As an abstract artist, my interpretations stem from the intrinsic nature of how the painting is made. In it’s making, I recognise unique meanings that transform my perception of space and time. This is my way to introspect the phenomenological process of perception and painting. The metaphysical approach to my art leads to questioning beyond our physical reality.
