Along with being aesthetically pleasing, Tarini Ahuja’s work provides the viewer with a sense of positivity and peace. She aims to create, through her paintings a space for solace and reflection, an escape from the mundane. Her handling of paint is intended to cause an effect of puzzlement to the viewer, the colour usage, and the contrast between thick and thin along with the use of shadows is a deliberate visual trickery. She uses acrylic paints as she feels it is a versatile medium and allows her to experiment with the materiality of the paint. Her colour palette moves from pristine whites, clerical greys, sensitive blues and garden greens to dusty, earthy shades, chaotic hues and dramatic contrasts.
She plays with the notions of illusion in painting and projects a whimsical feel through her works. The Japanese idea of ‘Ma’ and Wabi-Sabi both play important roles in her aesthetic. Ma can be roughly translated as gap, pause or the space in between. The concept of Ma is a powerful concept with many faces and layers it routes from the philosophies of Taoism and Buddhism.

On graduating she moved back to her hometown – New Delhi where she worked on a series of commissioned works for Sculpture Square Art Gallery in Singapore. She has exhibited her works in several shows in the Capital (India Habitat Centre, Lalit Kala Akademi) and Internationally (Singapore, Seoul, London). Her work is undergoing a transition due to her return to Delhi from Singapore. The drastic change of landscape has led her work to move from pristine whites, clerical greys, sensitive blues and garden greens to dusty, earthy shades, chaotic hues and dramatic contrasts.
Along with being aesthetically pleasing, Tarini Ahuja’s work provides the viewer with a sense of positivity and peace. She aims to create, through her paintings a space for solace and reflection, an escape from the mundane.
Her journey into understanding and consequently relishing the complex language of abstract art started with an idea. The idea that the language of Abstract art needs to be learnt through practice, exploration, patience and most importantly an open mind. She created her own visual language over a period of time through a series of rules and processes that turned in to a ‘code’. The medium of abstraction left her with enough space for spontaneity and impulse while the ‘code’ along with the concept of ‘Ma’ helped keep her relatively grounded and focused.
