Karishma D’Souza is a young painter who belongs to the new generation of Indian artists. In the work of D’Souza, memories of places, stories and people are containers of a psychological world. Drawn from the anchor of lived experiences, the paintings are places of acknowledgement of the dignity of journeys, of stitched together personal realities. The past has fallen away like a bridge in an adventure game; I didn’t see it coming. The path still exists ahead of me, it needs to be run, for a while.
My paintings draw from Mughul and Pahari miniatures, the geometry and the delight in life, peacefulness, in a memory of a Rajasthani miniature painter working with a fine brush, complete concentration, within a community, where the work is without individual authorship. I look for absolute quietness in a painting, where the human figure acts as witness. It existed, it occurred, because we remember. Karishma D’Souza
