REVIEW FOR COSMOS OF LIFE - PAINTINGS BY L SARASWATHI
Alankritha Art Gallery is organising an exhibition of paintings by L Saraswathi, titled Cosmos Of Life, from 19th December to 4th January. 35 recent works of the artist are on display at the gallery.
Saraswathi's paintings mostly depict human life, women in particular. In this exhibition, the characters - male and female - are akin to Lord Krishna, as the artist endows most of them with a flute. These characters are derived from stories (particularly from the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata, and from the Panchatantra) and myths, and their characters, flora, fauna and symbols are ingrained in social consciousness of most Indians. In fact, these characters, symbols and motifs are often resurrected by artists and depicted in art.
Saraswathi is a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) from the Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture & Fine Arts University, Hyderabad. An upcoming artist, she has participated in solo exhibitions at the State Art Gallery in 2007 and the Alankritha Art Gallery in 2008, and also in group exhibitions at the Lakshana Art Gallery in 2007 and Alankritha Art Gallery in 2008.
The exhibition is open from 11am to 7pm. Please contact the gallery at 2311-3709 for further details.
