Sanctuary by Sonal Johar
Mud and Mirror Work on Wood / 61 cms x 61 cms
Sonal Johar is an Indian artist based in the UAE. Working with mirrors is Sonal’s way of contemplating on life’s mysteries. Mirrors in her artwork are stimulating, helping to check one’s inner thoughts and emotions and in turn, stay focused, calm and composed. Sanctuary is a place where a person feels safe. The painting depicts a close leaf structure where mind and body unite within, finding a freedom from all the negativity of the world. The structure symbolizes that the answers to all problems lie within us and not outside.
