The Search Within 9, by Ria Sharma
Mixed Media and Acrylics / 97 cms x 97 cms
Ria is Dubai-based Indian artist and found herself drawn to cubism and has developed her own cubist-constructivist style to express herself. Ria believes that ‘the true realization of an individual’s identity lies in achieving a higher consciousness’. This is reflected in the Sufi tradition of the whirling dervishes whose rhythmic movement takes him to deeply meditative state. So beautifully reflected in the medieval ‘’Sufi’’ tradition, the melodious and mystic everlasting trance and the swirl truly frees him from all the worldly influences around him. Ria has captured their divine melody in her favourite Cubist style. The Search within 9 and The Search Within 11 are part of the vibrant acrylic series where artist explores the beauty of world within us.
