> DESCRIPTION

Yardena Kurulkar

Yardena Kurulkar’s work is the consequence of years of reflection around the journey of Life and Death. Her work aims to capture the essence of their co-existence, their inter-dependence, the similarities between them and the contradictions they pose.

Her own creative pursuit has been fraught with questions and dilemmas around the subject. That most of us obsessively deny death despite its certainty, strikes her as ironic. On the contrary, embracing Death as a transitory phase and the inevitable stage of Life, is liberating. The acceptance of Death opens new thought streams and in a noble way energises Life.

The fear of death can be confronted only when we recognise its transience rather than perceive it as terminal. Death after all, is an indispensable cog in the cycle of Life.

Yardena’s work and the media she has chosen for their expression, are influenced by the observation that they closely mimic Life. 

Yardena Kurulkar did her MA in Ceramics from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, UK where she was the recipient of The Charles Wallace Award for post-graduate studies.
Since 2002 she has exhibited her work at Group shows in London and Cardiff in the UK, at Toronto, Canada and Australia.
