Kamalakshi Saikia is an artist from India now based in Singapore who worked for Satya Paul as a textile designer for several years. Today she works out of her studio in Singapore creating designs on cloth as well as abstract and semi-abstract watercolours. Whatever her medium, she loves experimenting with different surface design techniques without adhering too strictly to the confines of structure.
In her own words she explains: “My work is all about play. Whether it is working on paper or cloth, I get so much joy from playing with colour and form without being bound by too much structure. My paintings combine my love of colour, especially earth colours, and the joys of experimenting with the watercolour technique, gently coaxing colour and water to form the end result”.
