From Sharma’s artist statement:

“Blue Whirl” is a playful abstract image series in which I use gestural camera movement and slow shutter speeds to create expressive compositions with diaphanous blue color. Planning for the wall installation required reflection and experimentation. The title references a 2016 discovery for a clean burning blue flame.
