Bithika Adhikary is an artist from India, living and working in the Jersey City area.
I have always been fascinated by the dualities – abstraction and form, movement and pause and the inherent energy in every moment, even a quiet pause. In my art I strive to interpret the energy, the spontaneity of the inner monologue of those moments.
Working with type, collage, ink, bold colors and a variety of my own handcrafted tools , I approach my work with an experimental openness. In some ways, my work is also a reflection of the many cultures in which I have been immersed, and the many worlds I have navigated, from India where I spent my early years, to Sydney where I attended graduate school, to the New York metropolitan area where I currently live and work. The breadth of these experiences has enabled me to embrace both the harmonious
interplay and the dissonant tension present in my paintings–with their abstractions, figurative gestures, text and performative, controlled flows of paint.
