REVIEW FOR EXHIBITION OF RECENT WORKS BY KOELI MUKHERJEE
Handcrafted bamboo quills can do some interesting stuff. Especially when in the hands of a Shantiniketan pass-out.
Koeli Mukherjee is hosting an exhibition of water color paintings and ink drawings, at Taj Krishna Hotel. The preview of the paintings will be held on 14th August at 6:30pm, and they will be on display till 21st August, everyday from 11am to 7pm.
The display contains a collection of water color and ink drawings done using handcrafted bamboo quills, by Koeli Mukherjee Ghose. The works exhibited highlight the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge, using a draw of lines and rhythmic lays of gestural color masses. They consist of figures with hints of Persian calligraphy and Japanese brush work rhythm.
Koeli received a BFA in painting from the Vishwa Bharathi Kala Bhavan, Shantiniketan, in 1991, and an MVA (history) from Rabindra Bharathi University in 2003. She worked as a curator for Kalahita Art Foundation, and has had her works displayed at places including Kalakriti Art Gallery, Chitramayee State Art Gallery and Kalahita Art Foundation.
