Renu Jain learned art at the Triveni Kala Sangam under Mr. Rameshwar Broota. At present she is practising art at Triveni Kala Sangam.
As a student she made drastically different art than what she presents to you today. It was as a student when she began painting on glass, and was mesmerised by the luminosity of colours as the brush glided across the surface in a way that she found impossible to otherwise replicate. The rest is history.
The subject of Jain’s art is the transition of nature into urban landscape. Her paintings are done from the reverse side and the actual work is seen from the front. We see a focus on lines and geometric patterns as a tool to communicate the monotony of the metropolitan city where there is more structure than space.
The details of Jain’s working process depend on the art itself. Some pieces take a couple days, others half a month It also depends on Jain’s own emotional intensity as she sets out to create. Some are stretched out over a period of time, others pour out in an outburst of emotion that is difficult to contain. It is only once her thoughts have been translated to canvas stroke by stroke, does she feel relaxed and satisfied.
As an artist and individual, Jain has evolved drastically over the years. She says that she feels more self assured now, more relaxed in her approach towards life and art. Her razor sharp senses convert indescribable emotions and feelings into beautiful works of art that may seem depressing and tragic at times, but never without hope.
