About the artwork:
"The Deep Sea" is an ode to the gorgeous Australian Seascape whose shades of blue are breathtaking. It is done in several layers of mixed media where the lower level peeks out to play hide and seek with the onlooker and takes him on a journey of the deep sea to find the treasures and joys of life.
About the artist:
Kanak is a contemporary mixed media artist based in Sydney. Born and brought up in India, then moved to Singapore and lived there for several years before coming to Australia and calling this beautiful country her home. She is largely a self taught artist and has completed a Certificate Course in Post-war Abstract Painting from the most prestigious MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) New York. She has her Master’s Degree in English Literature and has also been a student of Psychology. Thus it is obvious that her artworks resonate with poetry and emotion with the energetic splash and abstraction of colours. She has been part of various Community Projects and Fundraising events in Singapore and Sydney. She was part of Singapore Plank Art Project 2017 which was launched by the Honourable Prime Minister of Singapore - Mr. Lee Hsien Loong. Again in 2018, she was part of the Apron Project to support Hornsby Women’s Shelter, Sydney. In 2019, two of her paintings were auctioned to support the local communities and to raise funds for the NSW Rural Fire Service at Turramurra, Sydney. Kanak has worked as a voluntary Art Therapist in a prestigious hospital in Singapore and her Art therapy sessions have been very effective in healing the patients. She was highly appreciated for these Art Sessions.
