"In Colombo Srilanka, we are still in lock down and on to our third week being homebound.⠀
Inside of me, I strongly feel we will come out of this, gritting our teeth but we will beat this. You see, my Srilanka is Soul Strong. She has been crippled so many times, but her tenacity has got her standing each and every time. ⠀
A three decade war, a tsunami, countless floods, And in our recent path just almost a year ago a territory attack out of whose shackles she was just raising her head when Corona has now enveloped her. ⠀
But, Her Soul, her soul knows heartache, her body knows pain, and through this turmoil too, she will win, she will come out smiling, tired battered and bruised but she will come out. ⠀
I went to sleep with this sense of comfort, I’m so strong in my feelings at times that I have to put it to either art or words. I had one black paper left and there it was.⠀
Out of the blackness of the current times, the overwhelming days, she will come out her guns blazing. 🇱🇰 If you ever purchase this, please honour my sentiments and have this in a place that you will see it and be reminded of the strength of your soul. For strength doesn’t always roar, but most times a smaller voice that instead whispers, let’s try again tomorrow."⠀
Kamilka Perera, April 2020
Based in: Colombo
Kamilka holds a Bachelors in Architecture from University of Moratuwa in 2009. In her paintings, she endeavors to convey the essence of varied inspirations she draws from sights and sounds of Srilanka, weaving into her abstracts a sense of individuality that is essentially hers. Not confined to one medium, she explores varied textures as she goes, true to the self-taught artist that she is.
From Landscapes to Line Drawings her work revolves free flowing strokes taking the realistic imagery, which the inspiration stems from, and transforming it to an abstract whole. Born in Colombo Sri Lanka, and a practicing Architect by Profession, Kamilka’s artistry is part and parcel of her being, from the Architect to the Artist, both sides merging and helping each other, uniquely called to create “The Painting Architect”.
