Description

Artist Statement: "The clocks that engulf the elephant represent the flow of time, from birth until death. The stroke of each minute gives light to new possibilities and nevertheless brings limits to our existence. It is with the grace of time that all creatures procreate and coexist. We must act now to inspire the youth, for time inevitably churns the cogs of change, but the direction is up to us."

About Sonal Ambani

View Profile »

Sculptor Sonal Ambani began her creative journey two decades ago, sculpting across various mediums and styles. Her work bridges the gap between nature and urbanisation, seeking to create a delicate bond between these two diverse ecosystems. Each piece is adorned with her symbolic peace sign, a theme that is at the core of her work. Sonal sculpts with the intention of challenging the viewer to create his/her own meaning by reflecting upon their own life experiences. She believes that art needs to find that balance between visual elegance and intrinsic contemplation. Her sculptures have been shown at Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai and Art Bahrain Across Borders (Art BAB, March 2017) and are also a part of the personal collection of her Royal Highness Princess Sabeeka Bint Ibhrahim Al Khalifa, wife of the King of Bahrain and other members of the Royal Family.
