A shy and sometimes reclusive figure, Amrit Khurana did not belong to any particular school, but rather adopted stylistic elements from the individual artists she admires. She approaches portraiture with a more humanistic outlook that encourages the spectator to consider something of the personality of her subject. Amrit’s imagination often remains ambiguous, while the delicate attention to detail in her painting allows for a much greater intimacy to form between her subjects and the spectators.
Amrit’s ingenuity is evident both in her choice of subject matter and in her technique. Most of her work presents individual or scenes in non-naturalistic settings, oftentimes without any contextual basis, inviting the viewer into a more philosophical experience rather than a literal reading of the work.The paintings reflects her interest in psychological introspection and her belief in a shifting impermanent visual reality.
