Artist Sundara Heart grew up in a small town in the North of England. In 2012 she received her Batchelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from The Metropolitan State University of Denver and went on to become the founder and resident artist at “Grant Street Artworks”; an art collective and work studios in the heart of the city. Her work there explored color, light, night, motion, grime, city, communication, and place.
This series, titled “Self” began at the end of 2016 in the town of Olinda, Brazil. Here, she became the subject of the work turning on Self, calling for an exploration of the figure, and her relationship to it, the impermanence of the body, pain, transformation, falling in love, perception, conditioning, stillness, movement, courage, and strength.
"How this series will show up in her work moving forward is yet to be seen"
In a recent move to New Mexico and even more recently still to the charming town of Taos, she’s certain much inspiration flows from the color, depths and complexities this rugged landscape has to offer.
Another body of work currently in progress, explores colorful, abstracted images and shapes, chaotically situated and that invites the viewer on a journey into other windows, dimensions, space.
Artists that currently inform her artwork are Italian born artist Carol Rama, and British born artist Jenny Saville. Rama’s courageous, and playful nature inspires, it pushes boundaries, edges and existence. Saville’s, large scale grotesque nudes delight and disgust at the same time, invoking intense emotions and a profound sense of place.
