The Oil on Canvas Portfolio of Sukanya Ramakrishna
Sukanya Ramakrishna is an artist working primarily in oil on canvas. Sukanya’s current portfolio features artworks depicting a variety of subjects including landscapes, animals, and colourful, dynamic abstractions.
I like the painterly quality of Sukanya’s artworks. In her figurative works, the artist tends toward realism, depicting landscapes and other scenes with an eye for realistic detail, but maintaining enough of visible brush work and evidence of her hand to evoke an appreciation for the quality and materiality of the paint and the substrate.
Sukanya doesn’t shy away from bright, saturated colour, deploying it expertly in works depicting seascapes, florals, and dramatic skies. The artist’s approach to abstraction tends to focus on a central abstracted figure -- like a gathering of brush marks each in a different, highly saturated hue -- on a relatively uniform, textural ground.
