Statement

Sarika Dandona is an Abstract and Fine Art Photographer and winner of several awards at the prestigious Prix De La Photographie (PX3), Paris and the International Loupe Awards, Australia (earlier the International Aperture Awards). She is a gallery artist with the Egg Art Studio, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi. Her work has also been exhibited as part of group shows in New York City, London and in New Delhi.

She has been showcased as an upcoming photographer in Smart Photography (November 2008) and featured in Better Photography (February 2010), the two leading photography and imaging magazines in India. Her work has also been commissioned by Penguin Books India for the cover of the book titled “What Really Happened”, by author, Banaphool (Arunava Sinha Tr).

Her signature style is to delve deep into her subjects and draw out surreal yet intricate abstractions from a fusion of colours, shapes, contours, materials, textures and nature with the interplay of light and shadows. There is an underlying movement and flow in her work that channelizes bursts of energy towards a sense of peace and tranquillity. Her primary body of work transforms mundane objects with a strong element of intrigue to challenge first impressions.

An alumnus from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, Sarika’s background in Microbiology and Biotechnology research followed by her work as a journalist and then an entrepreneur and consultant in Healthcare and Life Sciences for over 17 years, has strongly influenced her inherent ability to visualize objects internally, up-close, with an eye for detail and multi-layers.
