Born in 1982, Mandal’s formative years of training in printmaking was from Santiniketan. Suparna’s work showcases an essence of contemporary expressionism. Her works of landscape depict the buildings which are sharp and geometric, the futuristic technology is sleek but textured, the landscape is barren and foreboding often resembling a scene from a dystopian future. Within her inconsequential works, Mandal tries to create parallels between functionality in the cosmic space and the nerve synapses of the human brain rendering in harmonious rhythms.
“My creations are marvellously kinetic – the paintings are like taking a roller-coaster ride through a space station. Only opens up with the suggestion of architecture to develop multi-layered symphonies of shades of colours, beams of light, long sheets of reflecting surfaces, and staccato harmonies. Gravity is inconsequential in my works. We are floating through space with neither ups nor downs, while we are happy to immerse ourselves in their kaleidoscopic frenzy. Or perhaps their spaces are interior and rendering the millions of nerve synapses which take place in our brain every minute?”
