Poonam Khanna is an emerging Toronto-based artist working primarily in acrylic. She likes to paint scenes of everyday life, but from a new perspective and is fascinated by the effect rain can have on a landscape, especially when seen through glass. The rain blurs the lines between objects, and many things start melting into one another. Reflections on the glass also become a part of the landscape. And sometimes the raindrops contain their own mini landscape, transforming how we see. When it rains, Poonam often heads out to take pictures through glass — car windows, bus shelters and even a piece of glass from an old frame.
