Lalit Kala Akademi, Ravindra Bhawan, New Delhi is an important seat of art in India, and I’m truly looking forward to displaying about twenty of my oil paintings and a dozen pen and ink artworks in a solo show at Gallery #5 of the venue.
“Shield” (4.5ft x 6ft,) which is one of my favorites will be there (this painting wasn’t included in the Turbulence collection at Alliance Francaise de Delhi) you can view it at this show (November 22 to November 28, 2022.)
On the easel, I have a painting about our need to constantly reinvent, reinitialize, and in the process, be reborn. Shedding the skin of yesterday and growing the wings of today – we emerge beautiful and strong.
On another note,
The day before, I visited India Habitat Centre and Triveni Kala Sangam and saw some beautiful landscape prints by Jayati Kaushik. Her limited edition prints were done using the dry point technique, which allows her tiny lines to stay crisp. At the Visual Arts Gallery (India Habitat Centre) an art collector’s collection was at display, and it included a 2ft x 2ft canvas by Subrata Gangopadhyaya with his signature-style dancers. All in all, a worthwhile trip.
