At the core of Shirupa Gupta’s work is her strong desire to capture a personal response to a world seen through her eyes and never to portray the subject exactly. Imagination is a vital component without which she thinks a painting cannot live. Imagination begins with the first urge to paint a subject and lasts until the last brushstroke is laid.
To be able to translate her feeling for a subject, she uses both soft and vibrant colors, strong contrasts and lively brushstrokes. She is specially drawn to play of sunlight and shadow on objects and how it transforms an object – the mundane to magnificent, the old to new.
Her purpose is to share the joy that she feels with those who view and collect her work.
