I'm Aarushi, a visual artist / maker / thinker.
With an integral philosophy rooted in the importance of time and space as materials, my explorations go back n forth between painting and conceptual art. Having grown up on a farm with nature in her multi hued splendour - constantly changing, growing, evolving, magical; I seek out the quality of impermanence in life and in the materials I work with.
Central themes to my research and investigation include concepts of ephemerality, journey, the capacity to dream, the invisible and the immaterial.
Minimalism, spatial tension, light and time as catalysts for informing our senses-are key elements of my practice.
In an attempt to rationalise the inevitable nature of temporariness, my thesis paper questions the relevance of olfaction in the visual contemporary art world. The camphor series was born out of this idea where I exploit the material in different ways till it sublimates and disappears.
I did my BFA (fine arts) from Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore (Goldsmiths, London).
