Born in the Punjabi region, Amrik Varkalis paints in the visual aesthetic tradition of British painting. She observes and records English culture, especially the English landscape in which she lives. She is concerned with brush marks and positioning of colour in abstract landscapes, shapes in her figurative and abstract to work, creating minimalist compositions. Her use of colour often draws on the palette of her childhood, showing warmth, permanence and oneness with the environment. It is often a different ‘eye’, a different vantage point, which appeals to many of our collectors. Says Amrik, “Put simply I want the landscape paintings to be accessible and lovely to look at in themselves, but also awake the viewer to look anew at the given landscape”.
