Uma Bardhan, whose repertoire includes depicting naturescapes, rural Bengal, Indian mythology and city life, got drawn to spiritual art in the later part of her career.

She experiments & works with plethora of medium including a rare  'water colour on silk'; a painstaking process wherein a special silk cloth is mounted on board before it can be used for painting.

"Bardhan weaves her protagonists, hindu gods & goddesses, women, birds and other natural elements into visual thoughts, into strokes of spirituality as one breathe in the colours, flow with the textures and soak in the spirit of mother nature."  — Hindustan Times, May 2014
