Yashika’s work has always been like a visual diary inspired by life, away for her to try to get a better understanding of the world around her. Her subject matter is closely related to her emotions, experiences, seen, read or empathized, be it be traumatizing past, ineffable emotions from the gone days juxtaposed by the current scenarios. As for the colour palette, she uses bright colours even to paint sorrow or solitude. Her treatment of colour is flat to make the paintings with a pictorial element or quality, one may say an influence by Bundi school of art and Pala paintings Ajanta). In the artworks displayed here, she has tried to perceive the thoughts of birds and animals, as we are caged during the pandemic, maybe they are thinking “Where are the humans, the cars, toxic air, hit and run beings? Are we the only ones to exist? Can we fly freely now? Nobody to hunt us or to cage us? ” And this expression is voiceless. We see nature being all powerful in its ultimate force and extreme. What if the furnished came back to life? What if branches started growing on us with birds and animals building their homes on us, just the way we inhabited theirs. Her drawings are a stream of both subconsciousness and consciousness, resonating with people and things around her.
