Portraying multiple aspects related to nature and women, a group of three women artists have come together for a group painting exhibition at the Birla Academy of Art and Culture.
Artist Uma Bardhan weaves her protagonists - women, birds, Hindu Gods and Goddesses and other natural elements - into visual thought using colour, textures and the all-inclusive spirit of Mother Nature in her works.
Kusumita Bhattacharya, another participating artist, paints urban landscapes and the joys of everyday life.
“Marriage and associated rituals occupy a central place in my works. Then there is one painting - of a watermelon market, which is my favourite,” says Bhattacharya, who also paints on silk. The third artist of the show Debika Mukherjee paints women with a sprinkling of wishful thinking.
