Seema Kohli’s works reveal a claiming of feminine subjectivities, an altered concept of feminine sexuality. Her works bring into focus a woman’s physical attributes, her intellect, thought, dreams and realities. The domain of sacred feminine geography with an effulgence of energy emanates from the paintings, where histh, memory and imagination have become the handmaiden of her own artistic oeuvre. Within the genres of sexuality and desire, one can’t ignore the parallel journeys of discovery that she has made. Being a student of philosophy, she has inhaled and experienced myriad notions of existence and has lived emotional and psychological reality.

She has received the Young FICCI Ladies Organisation Women Achievers Award and the Lalit Kala National Award for Women in 2008. Her works can be seen as public art as murals of 10’ x 100’ at the Delhi International Airport, Mumbai International/Domestic Airport, the Defense Ministry,Tata Residency, Tata Steel,Jindal Steel,VLCC,Manipal University, Hotel Leela Palace, New Delhi. Seema was also a part of the Art for Freedom at Bonhams Auction, Christie’s and Sotheby’s Khushii Auction 2007 and Florence Biennial 2008.Gifted as she is with a prolific brush of creative energy Kohli moved through the ‘Unborn Series’ and finally arrived at ‘The Golden Womb’ or the ‘Hiranya Garbha Koham’ series that propelled her into an orbit of her own. Her work captures in its entirety the perpetual change, order, strength and fragility, colors and rhythm, melody and exuberance of the elemental world. It talks about the creation, the cosmic journey, of the oneness of being and the final liberation in relation to the golden womb or Hiranyagarbha.
