Chennai based artist Sandhya Manne creates oil paintings and intricate Zentangle ink drawings. She is India’s first Certified Zentangle Teacher, she has shared her knowledge and expertise, teaching Zentangle at Art centers and Community colleges in the USA before relocating to Chennai. She advocates Zentangle for mindfulness by offering regular corporate sessions, private and monthly group Zentangle workshops at her studio, as well as through engaging online courses touching the lives of aspiring artists both near and far.

The heart of my artistic theme for this collection is the ethereal beauty of flowers. Each bloom encapsulates profound symbolism, representing concepts from love and beauty to growth and resilience. Flowers bloom as a constant reminder of the cyclic nature of life, the fleeting beauty of existence, and the enduring essence of the human experience.

Oil paintings serve as the cornerstone of my artistic expression, enabling me to capture the elegance and beauty of flowers. The rich, luscious pigments of oil paints allow me to achieve depth and luminosity, establishing an intimate connection with the subject. Interwoven seamlessly within the oil paintings is the captivating art of Zentangle collage. The rhythmic repetition of intricate patterns and motifs, intertwined with floral elements, fosters a dynamic dialogue between the structured and the organic, the intentional and the spontaneous. This infusion breathes life into each piece, suffusing serenity and engaging viewers to find solace, as though they are wandering through a secret garden of the mind.

Texture plays a pivotal role in my process, as I use cold wax for medium with a palette knife to sculpt tactile surfaces on canvas. The interplay of light and shadow adds dimensions to my floral compositions, while the textural elements become a metaphor for the complexities and layers of emotions that flowers evoke, serving as a reminder of the depth within ourselves.

My artistic journey is an ever-evolving expedition of self-discovery —a symphony of colors, textures, and motifs resonating with the human soul. Through the dynamic interplay of Zentangle collage over the oil paintings, and the enduring theme of flowers, I aim to create a captivating visual experience that celebrates the beauty of life, the complexity of emotions, and the serenity of mindfulness. I invite viewers to immerse themselves in my collection, “Blossoms in Bloom: A Floral Fantasy,” and to wander through the secret garden of the mind.

MILLENISMAL Art Exhibition By 4 Contemporary In Jehangir

Millenismal – A Melange of Reminiscence & Reality

Recent work of a group of 4 contemporary artists – Anupama Dey, Ashwathi Avinash, Bhaskarjyoti Gogoi and Dattaram Sudhakar Nerurkar has been displayed in a group art exhibition at Jehangir Art Gallery – Auditorium hall, M.G. Road Kala Ghoda Mumbai 400001 from 30th May to 5th June 2023 between 11 am and 7 pm. It will illustrate their genuine artistic instincts and skilful techniques in various mediums and norms under one roof.

This show was inaugurated on 30th May 2023 by Gourmoni Das in the presence of Tanuja Rane, Prof. Vishwanath Sable, Prakash Rajeshirke, Nilesh Kinkale, Apurva Nandi, Hansodnya Tambe, Smita Kinkale, Tathi Premchand.  

Vibing with the aura of a heritage aesthetic existence & the aspiration of a highly advanced future and the metamorphosis into that tomorrow, the Millenismal takes you back in time as much as it connects to the present. Curated by Artist and Art Curator Smita Kinkale, the exhibition tells stories from different walks of life, like a metre of a poetic expression sung by all together.

It is like getting lost in an artistic direction on a journey of discovering the elements we had left in the most sacred corners of our childhood memories. What makes this exhibition special is how the artists have created different versions of the same reality we all hold dearly within us, yet give us a way of exploring more with every artwork.

Belonging to the same time, yet coming from different places (geographic areas & cultures), the four artists enrich the exhibition by bringing together different journeys whose core essence perfectly syncs into one family sentiment of growing apart, yet together; connected by substantial values and an innovative future.

With four different forms of expression — printmaking, ceramics, painting, & sculpture — the four artists (Anupama Dey, Ashwathi Avinash, Bhaskarjyoti Gogoi, Dattaram Nerurkar) have created a multiverse of experiences that balance traditional design with a contemporary approach, thus creating the rhythm through various elements of design, without limiting mediums & forms.

Anupama Dey

She worships Printmaking by portraying her real-life experiences through diverse techniques and methods. Growing up in a rural setup in the countryside, coexisting finely with human life, her perspective of involving often forgotten portions makes her prints purely relatable. A house lizard smoothly merging with other everyday elements will bring a smile to your face, truly redefining coexistence where we take it for granted.

With the belief that learning is a lifelong journey of possibilities, her exposure to forms of performing arts like music & dance, adds rhythm to her style and form of work. The depth of thought is visible through the natural aesthetics analogous to time and space, today, yesterday & tomorrow, depicting the ever-relatable parts of living.

Ashwathi Avinash

Her passion for bringing sentient dimensions to the multitude of her childhood experiences brought her closer to expressing herself through ceramics. Belonging to a culture that appreciates the earthy existence of the joy of living, her childhood playthings form the essence of her inspiration to express time in its most innocent, yet charismatic way.

Her artworks spark an element of interest and you are in another world as much as you start feeling good about reality.

The baking techniques she uses, connect to the old days of simple living and the texture translates into telling a story of the past that is eternally relevant and special. Her love for the functional utility of art pieces makes them merge into the space they occupy along with establishing the distinct identity of their aesthetic experience.

Bhaskarjyoti Gogoi

Crafting three-dimensional details into the artwork, his paintings look like the pages of a life-size story book inviting you into his world of nature and emotions. Coming from regions that are blessed with a divine natural world, his work speaks through profound emotions, textures, and nature-inspired elements that stunningly capture your attention and you would get lost in his work for hours, and yet find it interesting every new day or at times, moment.

His brushstrokes create a symphony on the canvas. You can truly find yourself in the story, and at times as an observer appreciating the art with the overwhelming emotions, flowing in sync with the aesthetics.

Dattaram Nerurkar

Rooted in beauty and speaking stories of time & space that are eternally pertinent, his artworks are abstract sculptures crafted from naturally found materials like wood, stone, and metal. The geometry of shapes and forms take you to a world beyond your regular curiosity. The three-dimensional melody of the sculpture is a realisation that an emotion can be expressed through abstract forms of being and yet become relatable to the deepest possible context of existence.

Aged wood and the stones that hold a world in themselves speak of boundless emotions and become poetry in multi-dimensions. Intentional edges and cuts, and at times, burns, add elements of reality to his artworks, thus harmoniously mixing them in the space around them along with establishing their abstract existence with aesthetic expressions.


It’s about time & space, and it is about depth, experiences, and expressions. Millenismal is an odyssey of each of these artists independently & in conjunction with the depiction of the past, present, & future. The framework of their thoughts expressed through form, shape, texture, colour, and pattern manifests through distinct identities, yet materialising in one ecosystem celebrated as Millenismal.

It is like an interlude of music that gives us the breathing space to celebrate the time that is gone, is yet to be, and the time that we live in. It’s a reality that frees your imagination as much as it enchants it, making Millenismal – a melange of reminiscence & reality, and a little more.
