REVIEW FOR PORTRAIT GALLERY
The sequence of neatly framed portraits of a young woman appears as though she's bound to the confines of the frames with unheard silent cries. These are those "sad pictures" that encoil experiences and emotions into picture frames. "My paintings are my experiences…," says the young artist Lavanya Dutt, who seems to have painted her self-portraits with a dual drive - one to silence her inner feelings by extending them onto canvas, and another to take back to her mind, joy and a hope from the same process by adding color in an external manner.

In short, the portrait pictures stir together pessimistic suspicions and a desired optimistic outlook. This exhibition has 30 odd such pictures of women with sad, pale and dark stoic expressions. And, in contrast, she uses bright colours and shades, and also, at times, paints a tender creeper or foliage around the portrait symbolizing hope in life. Some of these paintings, either in egg tempera or in acrylics, have more than one portrait. They have the faces of two or more women in almost similar stoic expressions.

Lavanya also displays some pen and ink line drawings done in small scale, and framed neatly in black. "The profiles from her subconscious memory wear engaging hues that compel us further to closely read the psyche of the painter," says the curator Atiya Amjad.

Lavanya basically belongs to an artist family. Both father Professor Manmohan Dutt and mother Nirmala Dutt are practicing artists of Hyderabad. Lavanya has also worked as an art director for several short films like "Kalamkari", "Kalamkari Ramayan" and "A Journey to Baster" (for the Films Division) produced by Amaravati Film Makers, Hyderabad. Currently the artist is working on figurative images in oils and acrylics, and is doing a Mass Media course at the Central University.
