SARIKA GOULATIA Artist Bio:
The work of Sarika Goulatia seems an accidental realization through experimentation and exploration of different mediums; techniques and styles; and adapting them as a means to express her emotions. In the realm of painting, she works with both conventional and unconventional materials to express her beliefs and ideas. Goulatia approaches her art practice from a 3-D sculptural perspective. The act of applying color for her is interchangeable with hammering nails, drilling holes and building layers and often incorporating recycled material. Goulatia's work is often defined by the emotions she feels and wants to evoke. Her subject matter is extensively researched based upon historical events, landmarks and the indomitable spirit of the people. On a personal level Goulatia lost her father to Lou Gehrig's disease and the experience developed within her a fascination with the juxtaposition of the frailty of the human body and the strength of the human mind. These concepts constantly construct and deconstruct to influence her artistic endeavors. In some of Goulatia's works recognizable forms from nature fuse with the abstract in the hope of provoking a poetic sense of visual abundance that is simultaneously unsettling, surreal and provocative. Her sense of self stems from the various cultural and religious traditions to which she has been exposed. Through her work Goulatia attempts to unravel and unmask latent ethnic, cultural and gender biases in society to foster greater self-awareness and comprehension of the complex diversity of humanity.
