“….Sabita Dangol too, did not miss her iconic image of a ‘ comb’ in her both the works of stylized mountain and a village…” Madan Chitrakar, Eminent Artist/ Art Critic /Writer
” Her expressions are very bold and robust, and she has carefully translated it in a very feminine and tender approach in terms of her selection of colors. Her focal objects are often found static, but subtly and also very cleverly her works have been able to shift the viewer’s vision to the background work, where most of the movement, growth and illusion occurs as those waves and curls carry the properties of motion within; that is the beauty about her work. As a result her objects and forms become alive, I think most of her viewer can see this strongly in her both paintings and drawings. Some of her works also remind of the Pattern and Decoration art movement that emerged in mid- 1970 in America, where lots of patterns were painted within a different shapes and objects, and repetition and rhythm were very visible.” Roshan Mishra, Director The Taragaon Museum, Bouddha, Kathmandu, Nepal
“…for Sabita, also a proficient practitioner of performance art, her work is not only about personal transformation; rather it also interweaves the transformation of her entire surroundings. These bits and pieces of shapes and colors on her canvas take us to a realm where an idea has begun and is in a process of evolution. Every point of evolution is new; from this context no entity is new or old; these dots hang in the phenomena of continuity. The floating humans, the combs, flowers etc. tell a story. We sense fossils of mankind in these stories and we also find their possibilities. Metaphors have transformed but the story they illuminate makes the timeless consciousness shine through. And this indeed is her Solemn Odyssey.” Saroj Bajracharya, Painter. Writer. Curator
” Really Liked her varied colors and the juxtapositions of reality and fantasy. Like the way human figures tend to merge into nature in some paintings. Keep going Sabita !!” Dr. Sanjeev Uprety, Professor at the Central Department of English (Tribhuvan University), the author of the best-selling Nepali novel Ghanchakkar. & Dr. Archana Uprety, an independent scholar, writer and founder Director of Akshar Creations, a publishing house in Nepal.

‘Sabita Dangol is a multi-disciplinary artist who expresses her creative instincts through performances and paintings. In this series of artworks, she juxtaposes imagination and reality to make surreal compositions, using objects seen and used in daily life. The realities of these objects are transformed in imaginative compositions expanded on the canvas. Fishes float in the air, the combs metamorphose into human forms, their functions acquiring a different reality, fusing different entities with one another.’
ECS Magazine Nepal
” In the paintings…she has used vibrant yet soothing hues like, red, blue, purple, green, yellow, brown, and more. Motifs like comb, fish, peacock, flower, elephant, et cetera signify the elements of her life. For her, comb is the metaphor for solution, fish for freedom, peacock for good luck and elephant for prosperity. Her paintings are in the surrealistic form where the comb has come alive with a human head, vase and flower. Moreover the spiral pattern, flowers and leaves have been used repeatedly in the background of most of her paintings. About the patterns she said, ” Most of the time we are engaged in our daily life in a similar pattern and our life becomes monotonous, But the number of the days we spend counts as our life spent and the background patterns represent the same”
The Himalayan Times, Nepal’s No. 1 English Daily
” Sabita Dangol uses bright colours in her paintings to underscore the very feminine, domestic, and not so domestic concerns of her also female subjects, Unabashedly folky, bright and picturesque, her work has a modern edge to a sensibility that can be seen as traditional ( the Maithili fish motif, among others is painted by woman on the walls of homes, and other auspicious and sacred sites) but is actually quite contemporary, with direct feminine gazes looking out at the viewer even as the surrounding imagery is representational of hearth and home.
