EVOLUTION AS AN ARTIST
For Gurleen Kaur, art took a new meaning in 1984 when she was an eyewitness to the Anti Sikh Riots in Delhi as a student of College of Art. This catastrophe changed the meaning of expression of feelings through painting for her - forever. One of her paintings on the theme of Delhi riots caused quite a stir in the College of Art Circles. As Gurleen puts it, art was now an entirely different experience. Her works since then have carried an unmistakable streak of these memories. This was the turning point in her evolution as an artist and prompted her into deep contemplation on the connection of Spirituality with Colors and Painting. Spirituality is the theme that runs continuously through her paintings in many creative ways!
