ABOUT BRINDA CHUDASAMA MILLER A strong sense of rhythm and movement, colour and volume energies the work of Brinda Chudasama Miller. In her acrylics, form and its abstraction seem to surface separate and merge in a continuous interplay of light and shadow. Over the years her painterly journey has taken Brinda on a quest to intimately understand and manipulate the materials and agents she works with so that their inherent strengths and vulnerabilities are successfully harnessed to reinforce her compositions. Like an alchemist driven to extract precious metals from a secret configuration of materials submitted to fire and heat, she uses a wide spectrum of mediums and techniques to conjure an elemental and organic world of texture and form that highlight her stylistic vocabulary. As a painter, Brinda revels in the sheer Lila, playful delineation of the shifting perspectives of nature and environment, of capturing the tonal energy of pigment, of inventing a plethora of surface textures interwoven with multiple layers and imprints of ridged, stripped and masked areas that characterize her work.
