About the Show
By mid 2016, the artist, seeking a free and creative environment, was painting prolifically in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. The abundant Himalayan region catalyzed emotional freedom and it reflects in her art. The exhibition showcases this period in the form of the original progression from landscape and impressionistic works such as abstract skyscapes and floral abstracts to complete abstract expressionism.

Individually and as a collection the paintings reflect the spontaneous human mind. The artist works from embedded memories, emotions, colours, visuals, ideas and visions. These come to the forefront sometimes superimposing, while sometimes mingling with each other, and are displayed as closely as possible on canvas.
Eminent Artist Samir Aich examines “Precious Day”, 16″x12″,Acrylic on Canvas.
Thus each piece transposes the viewer to a state of emotion and flows through the various layers of the artist’s mind as it moves through myriad emotions, visuals and thoughts creating a stream of consciousness. The artist attempts to capture this stream of conciousness in her work.

Through the exhibition “In the Stream of Consciousness with Priyadarshini Ohol”, the artist invites you to an intimate experience into her stream of consciousness.
An artist from Bombay, Priyadarshini supported her Mechanical Engineering degree through modelling, ran a couple of businesses, changed things as an activist, took acting lessons in Delhi before a ski accident and surgery steered her towards painting as an art form.
