Harasgama’s reflections on life
Nelun Harasgama’s latest exhibition ‘no direction home’ opened at the Barefoot Gallery on June 17.

“Harasgama has painted for most of her life and has developed a style of elegant works, both contemplative and meditative in nature,” writes a critic of her previous work.

The oil on canvas paintings features her distinctive figural work. “The paintings are about how we think we are doing so much in our lives, but it turns out that it’s just the settings that seem to change. It’s just like in the old movies where the actor remains static and the background changes. Life is just like that,” Nelun says.
Her work is also currently on display at the Gallery Art Korner in The Hague showing the paintings and drawings of eight contemporary Sri Lankan artists.

Harasgama has been drawing and painting since childhood at Cora Abraham’s art classes. Her first solo exhibition was in 1994 at the Lionel Wendt Gallery. She has since exhibited at venues such as Heritage Gallery with her more recent exhibitions being at the Barefoot Gallery.

The exhibition continues until June 29.
