Aasiri Wickremage New Release on 8 November
‘Aasiri Wickremage New Release’ is the fourth event of our Autumn Showcase Season and our new gallery space at 7 Denbigh Street, Pimlico.
Artist, Aasiri Wickremage, has Sri Lankan roots and has spent years travelling, seeking inspiration from Asia, South Korea and China.
Using a variety of mediums and tools from these countries, Aasiri creates piece that are as exotic as they are culturally rich.
Her colour palette is bold and striking, a real testament to an artist fighting against her traditional architectural schooling to develop a unique style that is loose, and effectively demonstrating a creative abstract interpretation of landscapes and cityscapes.
Aasis explains, “My work draws inspiration from multiple cultures and landmarks I have experienced personally.”
“It highlights the experience of a landscape, its mood, character, lighting and density, all through several layers of colour, lines, texture and brush strokes.”
“I zoom in and out of the actual memory of the landscape to construct the story I have in mind.”
