Chitra Ramanathan’s intuitive, unique paintings bearing the theme of happiness, an emotion of the mind that has no recognizable form, is recognized through the popularity of her originals that are with various individual buyers and collectors within the United States as well as in Europe.
The artist works primarily in the acrylic medium as her paintings are predominantly large-scale and require a short drying period to keep up with her intuitions and inspirations. Acrylic paints have facilitated this work method thus far!
Her acrylic paintings are also characteristic of a variety of earth-friendly long- lasting textural materials that are incorporated into the paints as opposed to recognizable items that are adhered as in a typical collage work.
Her intensely colourful paintings thus combined with textural materials glow under any lighting, be it natural or artificial lighting to infuse that feeling of joy for viewers of her artwork.
