Drift

Sampada Gurung, 2019             

Digital drawing giclée print 

Sizes: A3 W42 x H30 & A4 W30 x H21cm

Limited Edition: 100 (A3) & 20 (A4)

Sampada's work explores human emotions, state of mind and the complex relationship we have with our own self and life. Each work has different feelings she wants to convey while encouraging viewers to find their own meaningful connection to what they see and feel. Her figures are ambiguous and have no defined gender and represent different parts of an individual to form a narrative that is free to interpretations. The red flower wrapping the figures is a reoccurring theme and represents the thread that connects us to the people we encounter. It is the thread of our own desires and fate that binds us. The flowers are symbols of growth that come from each moment and experience that allows the emotion to overflow.

"Some moments drift and some moments make us drift," - Avijeet Das

In this work, Sampada is trying to capture the feeling of wanting to drift away into nothingness. This desire to escape and forget about the present also carries a sense of comfort and warmth in the loneliness those moments can bring. Drift is available in A3 size printed on Somerset Fine Art paper and A4 on a special Nepali textured off-white beige paper.

Artist Sampada GurungArtist: Sampada Gurung

Sampada Gurung is an illustrator and ceramist born in Nepal but now based in London. After graduating from Falmouth University with a BA in Illustration, she was drawn to ceramics and stated developing a professional reputation in that field. She eventually found herself as a contestant in Channel 4's The Great Pottery Throw Down Season 3.

Using her skillsets in both illustration and ceramics, Sampada has developed a unique style to her works that straddle the flat surface and voluminous space as she explores the surreal human form and its associated emotions and symbolism. Her distinctive drawings feed into her ceramic art while her 3D work in turn influences her capacious proportions in her 2D art. In essence, this symbiotic relationship between 2D and 3D is what gives her work its idiosyncratic nuances.

Sampada is the founder of The Slightly Curious Studio based in North London where she runs life drawing sessions and pottery classes in addition to developing and creating her own art. All classes and workshops are designed to encourage and inspire people to be curious and to make creativity accessible to everyone. Essentially, her artistic raison d'être is to feed the curiosity and creativity will follow…
