Sood’s artworks are centred in a lifelong study of the emotive power of nature’s colours, our innate reading of the body and a naturalist’s eye. Her art takes you on a journey of emotional experiences, states of being and the quiet power of beauty. Sood’s artworks act as ‘portals’ into seeing what connects us, and are rooted in a profound political sensibility.
