About the Artwork:

In recent years, the artist has come to value the process of understanding their inspirations and giving them life in their own way. The work strives to evoke a sense of deep meditation, both during the creation of the art and for the viewer while experiencing it. In its essence, the artwork sheds light on themes celebrating life, devotion, and embracing the carefree aspects of nature, all woven together with elements of Indian mythology. It explores an imagined enchanted space—a secret garden—where possibilities are endless. This space encourages individuals to awaken their fantasies and allows them to run with them, celebrating the beauty of nature often overlooked in daily, bustling lives and giving it a life of its own—a secret garden coming to life.

As Flaubert writes, “They tried to discover in the rumor of forests and waves, words that other men could not hear, and they pricked up their ears to listen to the revelation of their harmony.” Let everyone take a moment from their daily lives to enliven their own secret gardens and, slowly yet joyfully, become one with the wonderful tales that life reveals.

About the Artist (BIO):

Sukanya Ayde is a Delhi born artist with a keen interest in traditional Indian arts. Her degree in Fashion and Textile Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, helped her to visualise and express her ideas freely and give them form. She is inspired by stylistic handling and representation of nature by the various Indian art schools with Kota and Bundi regions of Rajasthan, in particular. From untouched nature settings to intricate motifs and print-patterns, Sukanya's work strives to integrate the present with the past. Her work explores beauty in details that might often be overlooked in our present times and draws attention to it with her artistic representation. Her work draws from various concepts and philosophies that she resonates with while utilising her surroundings and observations to bring these into form.

As a child, the artist frequently traveled with their parents to various parts of Rajasthan. Surrounded by beautiful textiles and block prints, they couldn't help but soak in the scenic beauty around them. The dense patches of lush green forests served as a backdrop to dusty yellow houses, with weighted tree branches and creepers full of flowers breathing new life into abandoned arched pergolas. Untouched and untainted, these scenes called out to the artist, inviting them to observe the beauty and details of each fresh green leaf and blooming flower. It provided a place of retreat during dark hours and tired evenings. With each detail filled in, it encouraged the artist to let go of constricting beliefs and be one with the process, creating a deep sense of meditation within themselves.
