Pools of color

20140416-095600.jpg

This is one of the fabulous designs by Bristol based artist Chitra Merchant.
An image like a pool of invigorating color, a memory of sundrenched summers and far away destinations….

Merchant came to the UK in the early nineties, after graduating in psychology in India, and a year in West Africa, working in an artist studio.
She studied illustration in Bristol and moved on to printmaking. She experiments with print processes like screenprint, monoprint and digitally manipulated marks to arrive at these dreamlike images.
Perfect for a sunny, promising morning in April. Summer seems close.

One of the forces behind her powerful imagery is… taking a break, with tea and biscuits 😀 Brilliant.

Her prints are now on sale with Achica.com
