The Millcreek Art Council in collaboration with Millcreek Library are excited to present Durga Ekambaram as July’s Artist showcased in Getting Visual at the Library.
Durga believes that any form of art is an expression of unspoken words. Her artistic pursuits started at a young age, admiring and learning from her mother who is an artist in India. Durga derives inspiration from anything and everything around her. She loves to express her ethnicity and culture through her art. To Durga, creativity is a parallel universe, where expressions cannot be contained by the hurdles of the real world. As an artist, there is nothing more gratifying for her than watching paint dry. Utah has helped her rediscover her passion in arts.
This exhibit titled is “Textures and Techniques” and captures a glimpse of all the different mediums and techniques Durga has explored. Using different mediums to create desired textures is always an intriguing process. Artwork in mediums such as clay, watercolor, mirror work, quilling and glass intend to give a diverse experience for the viewers. Right from an upside-down painting, done in a unique way of painting the whole portrait in reverse, to a painting done using coffee, this display will capture many intriguing techniques Durga has adapted over the years. She always hopes to spread positivity and vibrancy through her art.
