This series of figures are the first paintings Sanchita executed once she left the London School of Economics, stylistically her work has changed but these paintings mark her first entry point into figurative work. At twenty-three although she had been trying to keep up her art at university when she got the commission to do the first painting in this series she agonised for hours over it. Became paralysed and was too scared to tarnish the canvas with a stroke of paint then one day she just attacked the canvas and felt a sudden epiphanal emancipation. She still recalls that first brush stroke that marked the moment she resumed her stroll in the universe with a pen in one hand and a brush in other. She plans to resume this series but with multiple figures.
