Five are the elements

Five are the elements
All the five artistes are connected with each other through the fragrance of their land, intense emotions and passions. The show has been curated by Prof. Saroj Rani, art historian/critic, former Head of the Department, Punjabi University, Patiala, Punjab.

Artist Rajinder Kaur Pasricha has painted on the themes of Punjabi women and their intimate lives. She feels deeply related to life and nuances of the women of the past, present and future. Ambalicka Sood Jacob relives the intense moments of joy through her close association to human nature and its intricate understanding.

The quest to understand the ‘truth’ is ever present in all her works. She disected the human nature in various situations and tried to find out the permanent elements which perhaps remain alive forever.

Sukhranjan K Cheema has brought alive the folk motifs of the Malwa region with her strokes on the canvas and her experimentation with mixed media. Her prominent motifs are from the Phulkari and other folk creations which became the lessons for the coming generations. Daljit Kaur Chinna has worked on ‘Phattis’ and canvas alike. The installation through the number of them displayed emphasises the play of the role in her childhood in the Malwa region.

Though living in US, she still sketches the reminiscences of her childhood, in her works. Jasmine Kaur has brought to use the ceremonial motifs with the dexterity of her hands. This exhibition is a mirror of human psyche for the present time particularly for those who are living in metropolitan cities.

When: On till 19 September Where:  Lalit Kala Akademi, Rabindra Bhavan, Copernicus Road Timings: 11am – 7.30 pm
