Komal Madar ‘s primary work draws inspiration from Nature, Abstract forms
as well as Indian influences Gathering inspiration from her experiences, surroundings and dreams, Madar paints instinctively; evoking emotions through her work as she experiments with new and different styles and materials. This investigative method gives a personal exploratory energy to her paintings; the abstract forms allowing the viewer a glimpse into her own subconscious as patterns from nature are depicted with vibrant passion, wrapping around the forms of figures twisted in pleasure.
Madar’s Indian heritage is another key influence to her work, seen visually in her use of materials such as Indian textiles, pigment powders and henna, and in her sprawling, intricate patterns, which add depth and texture to her canvases.
Madar studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins and Byam Shaw, and has since become a full time artist exhibiting work nationally and internationally.
“Visually I want my work to be beautiful and the point of entry to be intriguing to evoke an emotion in people. I work intuitively because I believe that’s when I create my most exciting work. Having the element of surprise is what keeps my investigation of materials and processes evolving.”
