Hemavathy's work is straightforward, vivid, and has an extremely pleasant momentum to it. Demonstrating an appeal for geometric forms, Hemavathy clones a single shape in various sizes, filling up the canvas with multiples of a single form, which are indifferent to each other and yet have meaning only as a collective whole.
An aesthetic understanding of colour pigments, Hemavathy uses a vivid palette. “My work is playful and narrative, and easily recognizable due to the uniqueness of the form. I explore the inner behaviour of people in their own interiors and exteriors,” explains Hemavathy. Her thoughts and acute depressions at times in the failing humaneness in today’s world are reflected in her paintings.
Although her outlook is global, she takes inspiration from the folk arts of India, especially the Kollam art of Tamil Nadu.
