Shivani Dugar’s “Where I Belong” exudes an essence of calm and delicate beauty, soft and clean in composition and thoughtful in its palette of purples, whites and grays. Dugar carefully approaches her painting with a multitude of textures through a wash of tones and strong mark-making which she mastered via the technique of Printmaking. “Where I Belong” is striking in its sense of light and the layering and interlocking of marks which invite the viewer to travel through the piece and allow the mind to wander. The ambiguity in the painting’s elegant abstraction encourages an observer to draw his or her own conclusions, engaging the imagination to discover its own story within this beautiful work of art.
