The underlining themes in Hinglaz Bardoloi’s abstract works explore questions of identity, the old and the new, as well as the sense of belonging. Through an intuitive and subconscious process, a complex and multi-layered world seeps into Bardoloi’s paintings, translating her own inner struggle in order to make sense of her human purpose. She uses diverse objects to create texture which includes stone, household objects, twigs, and paper with acrylics on canvas, glass, wood, and paper.
Born in Guwahati, a city in the north-eastern part of India, Bardoloi was deeply influenced by world art, music and literature and trained in Indian classical music. As a self-taught artist, her foray into art in the early years was sporadic though intense. Her formal education included a Business degree and she worked in the area of management and data analytics spanning a career of 16 years before committing herself to making art full-time professionally as an abstract artist since 2018. Since then, she has exhibited her art in various international art shows and galleries and has received recognition for her abstract style.
She currently works out of her home studio in Bangalore.
