In the years since I have seen Bharti's paintings, drawing heavily of a pristine vision of her husband’s family estate at Sahanpur. Set in the deep interior of western U.P the land and its once pristine environs produced images of big cats, dense forest settings, a pure and idyllic view of nature somehow contained within her painted frames. Bharti has since moved for a part of the year to Gurgaon and the shift in her work is quite dramatic .The forest environs of Sahanpur have vanished and in its place are the gods, in high Chroma as well as black and white. The fluid contours of the Bengal school and popular art immediately comes to mind.

But what is implicit as in her paintings of the pristine jungle--is the idealisation of pure States, both innocent of human presence and its contaminant effects. In this world of mythic narratives and visions of grace the gods appear imminent and benign. A personal vision has melded into a broader language, one that seeks both personal definition and grace.

Bharti Singh is an artist whose work evolved from painting realistic studies of wild life to life in general. In her latest works incorporating the ridges on thumb and finger prints in compositions verging on abstraction, she appears to have gone ahead to blending natural forms of individual identity, like thumb impressions or the strips of tigers, into a broader expression of the individual and general processes of ongoing life and changes in it .Her art is slowly developing from specific to general statements without losing the uniqueness that underlies these, which is the aim of all good art.

The symphony of colour in the repertoire of Bharti Singh strikes the viewer ,what is interesting here is the paradigm shift that has occurred, from the familiar expression of animals in their natural environment she chooses to portray her subjects now as seen in their relationship with the divine. The main linking factor between the two series, however, is not merely the reference to the divine; it is the strong sense of colour that dominates Bharti's work .The simplicity of the composition is alluring.

Bharti's tigers and Leopards make an unforgettable impression. Her palette suggests a rare liveliness .When we are seeing her show we really feel that we are with William Blake, "In the forest of the night” looking upon the tiger, burning bright.

Bharti has evolved a strong idiom, using both colour and brush strokes to propel the viewer straight into the golden glaze of her favourite animal .At the same time there is something simplistic about her compositions.
