Anita Anand

Anita Anand

Anita Anand paints what she sees. Inspired by the beauty in nature, it’s the flowers, grasses, landscapes, trees, fruits and vegetables that attract her.

They bring back memories of childhood, lives in other countries, cities and spaces – a wooden painted cupboard from Nuristan, a clothesline in Tuscany, brilliant lilies and a Zen mobile that dances in the in the mountain air, suspended from a chinar. Her work is not deliberated or planned; there is no set technique or genre. Whatever calls out to her, she paints.  She makes a posy of flowers in a glass and sits down to paint it. She looks out into her terrace garden and paints the brinjal on the vine and the portulaca at the base of the adenium plant. Paint me, they say. And, she obliges.
